Councilman Chad Wanke, on our Facebook fan page, has requested resident feedback on lifting the ban on fireworks on Independence Day. Feel free to let your voice be heard.
At the Placentia city council meeting last night, I formally requested that Placentia City Staff prepare a report on repealing the existing ban on fireworks. I want Placentia residents to be able to legally light fireworks on Independence Day. Banning fireworks may be necessary in some cases but I feel that prohibiting the legal use of fireworks in Placentia is Un-American. Additionally blanket prohibitions may lead to more use of the “unsafe, unsane” types of fireworks. If the fine is the same for a sparkler or a mortar I think many people will go for the mortar, more bang for the buck so to speak. Placentia residents please let me know what you think about this.
