With the 4th of July weekend coming up quickly, the Copperas Cove Police Department wants to remind you that fireworks are prohibited in the city limits of Copperas Cove. If you live just outside the city limits, city officials are asking that you contact Coryell County officials for information regarding fireworks and possible restrictions in the county.

The penalty for having fireworks within city limits could result in a $200 fine from the city so don't ruin your 4th of July weekend by giving up money you could have better used on more fun by shooting off a few fireworks.

For more information, contact the Copperas Cove Police Department's Public Information Officer Kevin Keller at 254-547-4221.
