House Bill 542 was signed into law on October 30, 2017. Under the new law, the Fireworks Act of 1939 was repealed and replaced in its entirety. The complete version of the new law can be viewed here. However, the questions and answers below highlight the most noteworthy changes.

Q: Which fireworks are Pennsylvania residents now allowed to purchase and use?

Consumers can now purchase and use "Class C" or "consumer-grade" fireworks that include firecrackers, Roman Candles, bottle rockets, and similar fireworks that contain a maximum of 50 milligrams of explosive material. The expansion includes those fireworks that were previously only available to out-of-state residents.

"Display fireworks," which are classified as professional-grade aerial shells containing more than 60 grams of pyrotechnic compositions, are still only to be used by professionals with a permit from the municipality where the display will take place.

Q: Who can purchase fireworks?

Anyone 18 years of age or older can purchase them.

Q: What are the restrictions on where they can be used?

• They cannot be ignited or discharged on a property without permission of the property owner.
• They cannot be discharged from 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.

Also, it is recommended that you check with your local municipality, as you may also be subject to applicable local ordinances.

Q: Where can the fireworks be purchased?

They can be purchased at any licensed facility, including temporary ones. The licenses are issued by he Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Examples of temporary facilities include tents or other tructures found in parking lots. These temporary structures can sell fireworks between the dates of une 15-July and December 21-January 2 each year. Click here for more information on Department of Agriculture licensing. br />

What is the MS4 mandated program about? 

All operators of municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) are responsible for development and implementation of stormwater management plans

The stormwater requirements of the federal Clean Water Act are administered under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) Program. In December 2002, DEP issued a General Permit (“PAG-13”) for use by MS4s that fall under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II program, requiring the implementation of a stormwater management program for minimizing the impacts from runoff. Several extensions have occurred since the expiry of the initial 5 year permit period, the latest of which extended the permit expiration date to midnight on June 11, 2013. After much debate and extensive delays, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection released its new permit requirements in late 2011, so all MS4s are working to understand how they are affected and prepare their applications before they are due. For more information, follow MS4 in the Blog. Under the MS4 Program, permittees are required to incorporate the following six elements (known as minimum control measures, or MCMs) into their stormwater management programs: Public education and outreach Public involvement and participation Illicit discharge detection and elimination Construction site runoff control Post-construction stormwater management in new development and redevelopment Pollution prevention and good housekeeping for municipal operations and maintenance

MobileNOW is an app that lets you use your cell phone to pay for parking. It's convenient, it's easy and it is quick! Mobile Now can be used to park in Easton, Allentown, Bethlehem and Reading. You can park and pay by mobile phone whenever you see the MobileNOW! signs in a parking area or on parking meters. After you￿ve parked your car, follow the instructions on the parking meter or nearby sign. Using MobileNOW! is much quicker if you register your details before you park for the first time. Once you￿ve done this, we￿ll store everything in your own secure account which means you can park and pay in seconds!

You can register HERE.

When you first signs up for the account, you will receive a pop up notifying you of the $20 wallet top up.
However, there is no actual financial transaction until you complete the first parking session as at that point, the system recognizes that the account is low and requires topping up. It notifies you that this is about to occur before proceeding.
When those funds are exhausted, the account needs to be topped up (funded) again in order to use the system. Minimal top up amount is $20 but you can select more if you prefer.
By default, the system has an "auto top up" feature that will load the wallet when the account is low so that if you attempt a session, funds are available.
Now, if you would prefer to opt out of the "auto top up" feature, simply log in to your account from a computer and disable that feature on your payment source. Then, you will have to manually top up your account when it is low before being able to start a parking session.

There is a .25 cent per transaction fee that goes to MobileNOW! Only the per hour rate goes to the city.
