Fireworks Sales

The city issues licenses to businesses wanting to sell fireworks in Oakdale. 

Application Requirements: New

Licensing Process

Once a completed application has been received by City staff, the application will be reviewed and a report will be submitted to the City Council. The licensing process may take up to eight weeks.  

Please note: Beginning in 2023, there have been changes to the background investigation process for this license. Any applicant that has not been through and passed the background investigation process in the previous license term will be subject to the background investigation process for the current term which carries a $375 fee. These background investigations will be processed every other year per individual (meaning not based on the year, but when the individual passed the investigation last).  All new applicants (whether main applicant or supplemental applicant) will be subject to the background investigation process the first time they apply and every other year thereafter.

License Term 

The license term is January 1 through December 31. Current license holders must re-apply annually by October 1 if they wish to continue sales the following year.
