At the CBJ Assembly meeting on Monday, August 15 the Assembly decided to propose a municipal ordinance regarding fireworks in Juneau.   The Assembly asked the municipal attorney to draft a proposed ordinance on fireworks somewhat based on the recommendations of the city manager.  (See below for discussion of the city managers proposal.)

The proposed ordinance requested by the Assembly would limit the use and possession of consumer/salable fireworks to brief periods around the Fourth of July and New Years.  Fireworks could not be used during the hours of 1 am till 10 am.  The fine for violating the ordinance would be $300.

The assembly did not accept the manager's proposal to ban aerial fireworks.

The proposed ordinance will not be considered by the Assembly until the October 10 Committee of the Whole meeting.
