ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Arkansas City residents will be able to legally shoot off fireworks this year.

The City Commission voted Tuesday to change municipal code to allow the use of fireworks within city limits and to set a permit fee for fireworks sales.

The Arkansas City Traveler reports (http://bit.ly/16gHXug ) the changes take effect immediately, allowing fireworks vendors to set up in time for July 4.

Fireworks could be used only 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. July 1-3 and from 10 a.m. to midnight July 4.

A facility of 500 square feet or less would pay a base permit fee of $2,500. That would increase by $2 per square foot for any additional area, up to a maximum of $5,000.
