The Clark County Council will consider revising the county’s fireworks rules during a public hearing at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2.

The council will consider repealing code language it adopted in December 2020 that restricted sales and use of fireworks to “safe and sane” fireworks.

The “safe and sane” provision prohibited fireworks that fly, explode or travel more than 1 foot into the air or more than 6 feet on the ground.

Any changes the council makes to the code at this hearing would apply to the unincorporated areas in Clark County.

The council currently is holding its hearings virtually on WebEx. Anyone wishing to listen to the hearing on WebEx can call 408-418-9388 and enter the access code 146-269-6857.

CVTV also will cover the hearing and viewers can watch on Channel 23/323 or the CVTV website at

Anyone wishing to submit written testimony for the hearing can submit their comment online at y-council-meetings.

All written comments will be provided to the county councilors and read aloud during the public hearing.
