Type: Informational Report Status: Meeting Item
File created: 7/14/2015 In control: CITY COUNCIL WORKSHOP
On agenda: 7/20/2015 Final action:
Title: Discussion of Future Code Changes Related to the Sale and Discharge of Fireworks in the City of Camas Details: The unseasonably hot and dry weather experienced in Clark County in the weeks and days leading up to the July 4 holiday resulted in many phone calls to the Fire Department, as well as to the city's elected officials. Most of these calls were from citizens asking that the city restrict or ban fireworks out of concerns for safety. Washington State law does not give the city that ability without Municipal Code changes being approved by the governing political body. This was an informal workshop discussion about fireworks use in Camas to find out what future ordinance changes the City Council may wish to consider. Presenter: Nick Swinhart, Fire Chief and Ron Schumacher, Fire Marshal
