The change in the Pennsylvania fireworks law has created confusion on the part of citizens who are under the mistaken belief that fireworks are allowed to be set off anywhere, anytime. In reality, there are essentially no places in the Borough of Sellersville where private citizens can set off fireworks as they cannot be set off within 150? of an occupied structure whether or not it is occupied. This provision essentially eliminates any location within the Borough for discharging fireworks. Other restrictions include:

They cannot be ignited or discharged on a public or private property without express permission of the property owner.
They cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building.
They cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building.
They cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure, whether or not a person is actually present.
They cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.

For more information on the fireworks regulations, please see the PA State Police FAQ site

If residents hear or observe the improper setting off of fireworks within the borough they are encouraged to contact the Perkasie Police Department at (267) 517-0099.

Sellersville Borough and the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy would like to remind you of the importance of preventing stormwater pollution while you make the most of the fall season. Stormwater is formed when rainwater makes its way into storm drains or runs off our properties directly into streams. On its journey to the stream, stormwater can pick up harmful substances that pollute our watershed.
