Fireworks ban for unincorporated King County is one step closer to finalization, after committee approval
As planned, the King County Council‘s Committee of the Whole took up the proposed unincorporated-area fireworks ban on Wednesday. With an amendment, it passed 5-4. The amendment by Councilmember Girmay Zahilay (read it here) has three key points:
-The first year this is in effect (2022), violators would be warned rather than fined
-Once fines do take effect, they would be $250, not $1,000
-A study would be required to see what it would take to get immediate, unarmed, non-police response to reports of violations
The fireworks ban, sponsored by our area’s Councilmember Joe McDermott, now goes to the full council for a final vote.
