If you’re planning to celebrate the New Year with fireworks, remember Eugene has new restrictions on their use. Now, there are two windows for legal fireworks to be set off: December 31st through January 1st and around the 4th of July.
Fireworks are no longer legal year round in Eugene. The city approved the changes due to frequent use and a concern for fires and the wellbeing of community members.
Scott Fellman a lieutenant with the Eugene Police department says he wants to remind people that they are only allowed to buy fireworks at licensed stands.
