Fireworks - Are Yours Legal or Not? -
It is that time of year again. With the 4th of July weekend just around the corner here is a summary of the Wisconsin fireworks law regarding which fireworks are legal and which are illegal in the Village of Biron. Please note the guidelines listed below apply to the state law, which are prohibited by the Village of Biron local ordinance. Legal Without a Permit: State law allows the sale, possession and use, without a permit, of sparklers not exceeding 36 inches in length, stationary cones and fountains, toy snakes, smoke bombs, caps, noisemakers and confetti poppers with less than ¼ grain of explosive mixture. Wis. Stat. § 167.10(1). There is no age restriction on sale, possession or use of these devices and the statute does not classify them as fireworks. These are the only kinds of "fireworks," as that word is commonly used, that a person may use or possess without a permit or that may be sold to a person who does not have a permit. Illegal Without a Permit: Possessing or using any other fireworks, including, for example, firecrackers, roman candles, bottle rockets and mortars, is illegal in Wisconsin without a valid permit. Wis. Stat. § 167.10(3). A commonly used rule of thumb is that a permit is required if the device explodes or leaves the ground. The sale of these fireworks to a person without a valid permit is also illegal, Wis. Stat. § 167.10(2). In order for an individual to receive a pyrotechnic permit the individual must possess a current pyrotechnic guild certification. Chief David A. Kerkman Jr., Village of Biron Fire Department
 
2022 Rental of Seasonal Boat Slips Available -
Slips are located on the Biron flowage along the Wisconsin River in the Village of Biron, May 15 through October 15 (weather permitting). A map is available under the Services tab on this website. Contact the Village of Biron 715-423-6580 or utilities@biron.wi.gov.
 
Building Permits Required -
Building permits are required for nearly all building and remodeling projects including furnace and air conditioner installations. Permits are always required for a roof, driveways, fences, and sheds. The contractor should apply for the permit at the municipal clerk's office. By doing so, protection is offered for both parties. If the homeowner pulls the building permit for the contractor, they may be personally liable should there be an injury. As the homeowner, you may be unaware that the contractor may not be paying unemployment insurance, worker's compensation insurance, or carrying liability insurance, thus putting unknown liability on you. Work done prior to obtaining a permit, including early start permits, will result in the permit fee being doubled. Visit the Permits and Forms page for further information.
