    We, the city council need to hear from you in the context of city business. That means, please call or write to each of us and explain your thoughts on this topic. My colleagues on the council will not call an emergency meeting based on the NP blog article or comments to it. That’s just the reality. So, if you want us to initiate anything regarding fireworks get in touch with us thru the formal format – direct to city manager or city council. The number at City Hall:248-7603

    I am in favor of regulating fireworks and until the climate returns to more moist and cooler summers, remove fireworks from the Park altogether.

    Governor Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency, activating the Washington National Guard last year during the Carlton complex fire in eastern Washington. Approximately 300 HOMES were lost and one death was attributed to that fire. We are an URBAN place with closely placed homes and a small urban “forest”. Our homes are clustered close together unlike the rural areas and tiny cities that were the centers of the Carlton fire last year. Think of the difference and imagine what one spark might do.

    Unfortunately it takes an order by the governor to declare an emergency. RCW 70 77 250 section 4, describes the law that the state fire marshal’s office cited in exposing our mutual frustration with the limitation on ordinary citizens to force a declaration of an emergency. Our best hope this year is public restraint AND a meeting of the city council prior to July 4th to remedy the fireworks situation for the next year.
