Fireworks ordinance advances


The Board of Supervisor­s held a public hearing on Monday to discuss the current fireworks ordinance after residents near Amissville reportedly heard fireworks for six hours straight on March 26.

County Administra­tor Garrey Curry said the Rappahanno­ck County Sheriff’s office and a nearby fire and rescue department were notified before the fireworks began, but Curry said he did not forward that informatio­n to the rest of the Board.

The Board authorized Curry to work with the county attorney in an “expeditiou­s manner” to bring back a draft ordinance for review at the body’s May meeting to address the permitting process.
