(Fremont County, WY) – Want to ring in the new year by lighting off fireworks? County 10 has confirmed that fireworks are allowed in Riverton, Lander, and Shoshoni this New Year’s Eve.
Though approved within the city/town limits, there are still restrictions. Specifically, the timeframes for lighting them off.
Per the ordinance adopted by Riverton City Council in 2019, fireworks can be lit off within the Riverton City Limits starting at 5:00 pm on December 31st and ending at 12:30 am on January 1st.
Though there were many noise complaints after the 4th of July in Riverton this year, no changes have been made to the current ordinance, according to City Administrator Tony Tolstedt.
Fireworks are permitted within Lander City Limits from 4:00 pm on December 31st to 12:30 am on January 1st.
“The Shoshoni Town Council has approved fireworks being permitted within Town limits from 8 pm on December 31st, 2020 through 12:30 am on January 1st, 2021, which will be strictly enforced,” Shoshoni Chief of Police and Town Clerk Chris Konija shared with County 10.
Dubois Town Clerk Sandy Hust shared, “per Town Code 10-4-3, The discharge of Fireworks, or any public display of fireworks must be authorized by resolution which has not been presented for council approval and has not been approved for New Year’s Eve.”
County 10 has not been able to confirm with the Town of Pavillion nor the Town of Hudson on whether or not fireworks will be permitted this year. We will share any updates if we hear back from them.
Happy New Year, 10’rs! Stay safe out there! 🎆
