Cy-Fair school district warns of fireworks laws
Cypress-Fairbanks ISD is reminding people celebrating New Year’s Eve that Texas law prohibits the discharge of fireworks on school district property.
Texas Occupations Code states that a person may not explode or ignite fireworks within 600 feet of any a public or private primary or secondary school or institution of higher education, unless the person receives authorization in writing from that organization.
The violation of this law that results in property damage in an amount of less than $200 and does not result in bodily injury or death is a Class C misdemeanor.
The Cypress-Fairbanks ISD security department will patrol the districts premises during this holiday season.
Citizens who observe such violations are requested to contact the district’s security dispatcher at 281-897-4337 or the Harris County Precinct 4 Constables at 281-376-3472.
