Dry conditions and the potential for wild grassfires may force Lubbock County Commissioners to restrict the use of some fireworks or ban them entirely for the Fourth of July. The commissioners are to vote on the issue June 13th. They will look at various options, including whether to ban certain types such as stick rockets and missiles with fins, or to prohibit the sale of fireworks entirely. They’ll also be deciding whether to hold a 4th of July display. Commissioner Bill McKay said the concern focuses on unincorporated areas outside of Lubbock where the potential for grass fires is greatest. A county burn ban already is in effect. Any fireworks restrictions would go into effect June 15th.
