As the July 4th holiday approaches this weekend, we are again reminding all residents and businesses of Knob Noster that fireworks are illegal in the city limits of Knob Noster. By City Ordinance all fireworks found in the Knob Noster limits are subject to seizure and the owners, or property owners on which they are found or discharged, subject to a fine. Veterans with PTSD as well as our furry family members, our pets, can be startled or suffer serious anxiety from the noise. When considering your options this weekend please take into account your neighbors and the impact that fireworks may have on them or their pets. If you are going to enjoy lighting fireworks somewhere outside the Knob Noster city limits this year, please head over to the Facebook page of the Knob Noster Fire Department for some helpful tips on how to do so safely. Happy Independence Day!
