Sacramento County property owners will be held liable for allowing illegal fireworks to be used on their properties. County Supervisor Sue Frost said Thursday that the county board of supervisors unanimously voted to pass the ordinance ahead of the Fourth of July holiday. If illegal fireworks are used at a property, the owner of the property or the person in charge of it will be held responsible. A first violation would result in a $1,000 fine. A second violation within a year of the first would receive a penalty of $2,500. Any further offenses within a year of the first would each see a fine of up to $5,000. Additionally, any illegal fireworks use within the American River Parkway would see a penalty of $10,000 per violation. Frost said those held liable would also be responsible for costs related to the response and presence of emergency personnel.
