Fireworks Safety
Fireworks Safety for the Fourth of July
06/29/2021
The safest way to enjoy fireworks this July Fourth is at the Statesville Fireworks Celebration this Saturday, July 3, at 9:30 p.m. in the Signal Hill Mall area. But if you’re thinking about putting on your show, here’s what you need to know before you purchase legal fireworks from a reputable fireworks dealer: The only fireworks that are legal in North Carolina are sparklers, fountains, and novelty fireworks items that do not explode or are not intended to spin or to leave the ground and fly through the air. These include snake and glow worms, smoke devices consisting of a tube or sphere that produce white or colored smoke, trick noisemakers, including party poppers, string poppers and snappers and wire sparklers. You must be 18 to purchase fireworks in North Carolina and it is illegal for children under the age of 16 to possess fireworks. That’s why the Statesville Fire Marshall’s office stresses that fireworks should only be used under close adult supervision. Thousands of people of are injured each year due to fireworks-related incidents. If you choose to buy and use legal fireworks, follow these safety tips:

Housing Inventory Underway
06/11/2020
By the end of the summer, the City of Statesville will have its first ever housing inventory completed. This record of nearly 10,000 houses will be used by the Planning Department in future decision-making and as an aid in developing priorities for housing-related issues. The inventory is being conducted by Planning Department staff with the help of Recreation and Parks staff, and involves driving by every residential structure within the city limits. The City’s IT staff developed a special software program that allows the inspectors to instantly record the condition of each house, noting whether it is in compliance with the City’s minimum housing code or whether it appears to need repairs or may be abandoned. The report will also list the owner of the property, any reported liens or back taxes, and background on prior maintenance issues.
