The 4th of July holiday is fast approaching, so it’s a good time to review the city of Lee’s Summit’s fireworks regulations.

Fireworks Use Permit
A free Fireworks Use Permit must be obtained each year. Permits are available from any licensed fireworks vendor within the City of Lee’s Summit or at City Hall during regular business hours. Permits are valid for the address listed on the permit where the discharge of fireworks will take place.

Fireworks Sales Permit
Fireworks Sales Permit is required for the retail sale of fireworks and the application is only accepted in the spring of each year for a limited amount of time by Development Services. Vendors are asked to contact Development Services.

Fireworks Display Permit
