permit for the display on the following conditions:
(1) That the display be conducted by a competent operator approved
by the judge;
(2) That the display shall be of such character as in the opinion
of the judge will not be hazardous to persons or property; and
(3) That the application be accompanied by a bond in the principal
sum of $10,000.00, payable to the county in which the display is
being held and conditioned for the payment of damages which may be
caused either to persons or to property by reason of the display
or, alternatively, that the application be accompanied by evidence
that the applicant carries proper liability insurance for bodily
injury in the amount of not less than $25,000.00 for each person
and $50,000.00 for each accident and for property damage in the
amount of not less than $25,000.00 for each accident and
$50,000.00 aggregate, with an insurance company duly licensed by
the Commissioner of Insurance.
(b) The permit provided for in subsection (a) of this Code section shall be limited to the time specified therein, such time not to exceed a two-week period. The permit shall not be transferable. In the event any fireworks bought and possessed under this Code section are not used by the licensee or in the event that there is a surplus or excess after the two-week period expires, it shall be the duty of the licensee to return such fireworks to a facility approved in accordance with Code Section 25-10-3.1 and the rules and regulations promulgated by the Safety Fire Commissioner. Fireworks stored in accordance with Code Section 25-10-3.1 and regulations shall not be deemed contraband and shall not be subject to seizure.
(c) The judge of the probate court shall receive $10.00 for his or
her services in granting or refusing the original permit and $1.00
for each copy issued, to be paid by the applicant.
