Any entity intending to set off certain fireworks in the unincorporated areas of Johnson County must obtain a permit from the Board of Supervisors. Displays within the limits of an incorporated municipality are governed by the ordinances of that city, not the Board of Supervisors.

A signed application must be accompanied by:

  • Evidence of operator certification
  • Diagram of the shoot site
  • Proof of insurance
  • $40 application fee

A hard copy of the signed application with all required attachments should be submitted for consideration by the Board of Supervisors Office at least 14 days before the anticipated display.
