[ARCHIVED] Fireworks survey results and public hearing scheduled for May 7 City Council meeting
As part of the city’s process of reviewing its fireworks regulations, public input was sought via a public survey regarding the use and impact of personal fireworks during the 4th of July holiday season.
Survey results will be presented at the Monday, May 7 City Council meeting. The meeting will also include a public hearing regarding fireworks regulations within the city of Battle Ground.
Currently, city ordinance allows the use of legal fireworks each year during the 4th of July season from June 28 through July 5, and during the New Year’s holiday season from December 27 through December 31. These timeframes are the maximum allowed by state law which governs the regulation of fireworks, including what fireworks are legal, the licensing of public fireworks displays and fireworks sellers, and when fireworks may be sold or discharged. State fireworks law also provides for more restrictive local city regulations, such as the days fireworks may be sold or discharged within the state’s regulated timeframe.
Battle Ground City Council meetings are held at City Hall, located at 109 SW 1st Street, the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month beginning at 7:00 pm. Meetings are always open to the public. Meeting agendas, including the agenda for the May 7 meeting, are available online at the Agenda Center.
