Fireworks Ordinance
If citizens have a complaint of fireworks being shot outside the allowed dates/times in their neighborhoods, call 911 and give the dispatcher as detailed of a location as possible, to include a specific address when available.

This will give our officers the best chance of locating the violators.

Consumer fireworks are restricted to July 3 and July 4 from 2:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. each day.

Also, the night of December 31 from 10:00 p.m. until 12:30 a.m., immediate following day.

Residents are allowed to shoot off fireworks on their own property or have permission from the property owner. Individuals may not shoot off fireworks on public property, streets, or in city parks.

Fireworks outside of the approved dates and times will not be allowed and the offender is subject to a fine.  The fines are as follows: first offense $250.00, second offense $400.00, and third or more offenses $625.00. Both adults and minors are subject to fines for violating the fireworks ordinance.

If fireworks are being used at a residence and the person responsible for setting off the fireworks does not come forward, the homeowner will be cited for Disorderly House, 5-5A-7 of the City Code, with a fine up to $625.00.

Sky lanterns are prohibited in the City of Bettendorf under the International Fire Code. Sky Lanterns, or sometimes called, floating lanterns, wishing lanterns, and celebration lanterns are airborne paper lanterns with a small candle or fuel cell that when lit, heats the air in the lantern making it rise. They are known to travel up to several miles from where they were released. If a sky lantern lands on a roof or on a combustible surface while it is still burning, it could ignite and cause a fire.

The fireworks ordinance will be strictly enforced by the Bettendorf Police Department.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Chief Keith Kimball at or 563-344-4020.
