DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — Welcome rains in western Kansas will mean the return of fireworks to Dodge City and perhaps Barton County as well. The Dodge City Commission agreed this week to allow the discharge of fireworks in Dodge City on July 3-5 on private property, between 10 am and 11 pm. Fireworks are still prohibited on public property and it is still illegal to sell or store fireworks in the city. Last year, fireworks were banned because of drought conditions. The Hutchinson News reports Barton County is considering allowing fireworks on July 3-4. The county commission will consider the issue Monday.
