A. Application for a permit shall be made in writing not less than forty-five days prior to the date of the display. Every display shall be handled by a pyrotechnic operator, and shall be of a character and located discharged and fired so that it will not be hazardous to property or endanger any person. Before a permit is granted, the operator, location and handling of the display shall be approved by the board of supervisors after investigation and approval by the sheriff. After a permit is granted, the sale, possession, use and distribution of fireworks for the display shall be lawful for that purpose only. No permit is transferable or assignable and will be void if transferred or assigned.
B. If a community, organization or group authorized under this section to obtain a permit for public display of fireworks desires a permit for a locality more than fifty miles from the county seat and not within the limits of an incorporated city or town, application may be made to the justice of the peace of the precinct in which that locality is situated. The justice may issue the permit, subject to the conditions prescribed by this section, in the same manner as the board of supervisors. The constable shall make the prescribed investigation. The justice of the peace shall promptly report to the board of supervisors any permit issued by him pursuant to this subsection and shall transmit the bond of the applicant to the board.
