Public invited to weigh in on proposed County firework restrictions

The Pierce County Council is encouraging the public to provide feedback on a proposed ordinance that restricts fireworks in the County.

County Ordinance 2016-39s would amend Pierce County Code limiting the days and hours when fireworks may be sold and discharged. Amendments to this proposed ordinance may be considered at the Council meeting. The opportunity to speak to the Council is Oct. 18 at 3 p.m., at Council Chambers, 930 Tacoma Ave. S., Room 1045. Individuals who are unable to make the meeting but would still like to comment can contact their County Council representative or comment online at www.co.pierce.wa.us/council.

Pierce County Code currently follows state law regulation on the sale, purchase, possession and use of consumer fireworks from June 28-July 5. The proposed ordinance would make the following changes to the current Unincorporated Pierce County Code:

Sales and Purchases Permitted: July 1 through July 4, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Discharge is Permitted: July 4, 10 a.m. to Midnight.

This code amendment is subject to a vote of the Council and would be in effect for the July 4, 2018 holiday.
