Whereas, on the 29th day of May 2009, the Commissioners Court of Live Oak County has determined that the normal danger of fire in the unincorporated areas of Live Oak County is greatly enhanced by the extremely dry conditions now existing:

Now, therefore, the Commissioners Court of Live Oak County adopts this Order prohibiting the sale or use of restricted fireworks in the unincorporated areas of Live Oak County.

No person may sell, detonate, ignite, or in any way use fireworks classified under 49 C.F.R. part. 173.100(r) (2) (10-1-86 edition), as “skyrockets with sticks” and “missiles with fins” in any portion of the unincorporated area of Live Oak County.

This order does not prohibit: common fireworks, small in size classified as Class C explosives; large fireworks devices designed primarily to produce visible or audible combustion, deflagration, or detonation and classified as Class B explosive by the U.S. Dept. of Trans. [TEX. OCC. Code, Chapter 2154].

A person commits an offense if the person knowingly or intentionally violates a Prohibition established by this Order. An offense under this order is a Class C misdemeanor.

Approved this the 29th day of May, 2009, by the Live Oak County Commissioners Court.
