Taylor County commissioners approve fireworks sales
ABILENE, Texas - With so much rain this spring and in recent weeks, Taylor County Commissioners are giving the green light for fireworks this 4th of July.
The unanimous vote to allow the sale of fireworks this season was made during their Tuesday meeting.
Fireworks are not allowed to be ignited inside the city limits of Abilene, and they cannot be popped on public ground like roadways.
While the ground isn't dry like previous years, commissioners are asking everyone to keep water nearby and to be extra vigilant as the vegetation dries out.
