FIREWORKS BAN: County Council consideration next week

As we reported last week, the County Council’s Committee of the Whole delayed its consideration of the bill to ban fireworks in unincorporated areas. Next Wednesday, it’s on the agenda, 9:30 am. As the preview from council staff notes: “If approved, it would still have to go before full council and then would have a one-year waiting period before it could take effect. It would not ban properly permitted fireworks displays or impact fireworks on tribal trust lands.” Read the bill here. If you want to comment, before or during the meeting, the agenda explains how.

  1. The fireworks ban passed on 3/17, with one ammendment. It would be interesting to hear what the ammendment was.

  2. I’m writing that right now. It has a few clauses, primarily the reduction of the proposed fine from $1,000 to $250.

  3. I think they should make the fine the average price of a home in the neighborhood the crime happens in . Or pay ever house in a mile range $500 cash for putting up with the unneeded noise .
