Consumer Fireworks Permit Application (PDF)


The Town of Milton has strict terms and conditions that must be met. Any application for a permit certifies they have agreed to the terms and understand them fully. To avoid issues with permit approval please review the following points of emphasis.

  • A permit application must certify that the fireworks display is 500 feet from the nearest residence. This will be checked on publicly available maps and non-compliant permits will be rejected regardless of past approvals.
  • Your permit can be made void at any point by an Officer of the town (Police, Fire, Health) based on a variety of factors.
  • Because of the 500 foot restriction many properties in the village area will not be approved for a consumer fireworks permit.

Please direct questions to the Police Department at 802-893-6171.
