Fireworks citations reported online in San Jose to be dismissed, reimbursed

San Jose decided Wednesday that they would dismiss and reimburse all fireworks-related citations that were reported online. 

KTVU has obtained a letter from the City Attorney Richard Doyle where he explains the city had come to the decision. "Additionally, the City is reviewing and will consider refinements to that process of reporting fireworks violations," the letter says. 

It continues to say the city is committed to public safety related to fireworks and will share more information on how the city plans to enforce rules regarding un-permitted fireworks activity. 

This year, those caught with illegal fireworks in San Jose faced up to $1,000 in fines.
