On June 20, 2018, the Ephraim City Council passed a resolution strongly encouraging residents to find an alternative way to celebrate the 4th of July this year other than lighting fireworks. New State legislation prohibits cities from banning fireworks city-wide; however, the City is experiencing extreme dry conditions and Mayor Squire and the City Council would like you to be aware of the following:

  • With reduced watering by the City, College and School District, we are experiencing extreme fire hazard conditions.
  • Drought conditions and water levels have seriously jeopardized emergency water storage for fire suppression.
  • The discharge of aerial and/or explosive fireworks would be considered careless and negligent given the current conditions.
  • Residents will be held liable for the cost of any fire suppression or damage caused by fireworks.
  • Residents will be sited for not following the new State dates and hours for lighting fireworks.

(July 2-5 and July 22-25 between the hours of 11 am and 11 pm)

We wish you a happy and safe 4th of July and encourage you to join The Mayor and Council in finding a new way to celebrate this year.
