Sentinel staff report–
Sales of “safe and sane” fireworks are often one of the biggest annual fundraisers for various nonprofits, with sales legally allowed to begin June 28 at noon and continue through July 4.

As of Friday last week, the city reported a total of 19 fireworks stands being issued licenses in Citrus Heights this year. Purchases from one location may help a local little league, while making that same purchase a few blocks up the street could support police or a local church.

The following is a list of licensed locations and the name of the organization in charge of the stand, as provided by the City Clerk’s office:

  • Antelope Road Christian Fellowship: 7951 Antelope Rd.
  • Bella Vista High Band Boosters: 6177 Sunrise Blvd.

An ordinance made permanent by the Citrus Heights City Council in April prohibits setting off fireworks after 11 p.m., including those labeled “safe and sane.” The ordinance also allows authorities to cite landlords and those deemed “social hosts,” if illegal fireworks were discharged on the property.
