At it's Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday, October 31, the CBJ Assembly voted to postpone further consideration of a proposed fireworks ordinance until April 2017. In the meantime, Juneau Police Department is directed to make a concerted effort to enforce the noise ordinance.
JPD will seek voluntary compliance with noise ordinance. Failure to voluntarily comply will result in citation.
Most days of the year, JPD will respond to complaints about fireworks after 10 pm. On Fourth of July, JPD probably would respond to fireworks after 1 am. Not sure how JPD will respond to fireworks complaints
during daylight hours.
The Assembly will review the effectiveness of the noise ordinance in April before considering the proposed firework ordinance again.

you and your dog safe after dark: With

both on themselves and on their dogs, when walking or

Dog owners should do all that they

the gate is open or not, do not use the trail that
goes around the pond. The golf course road
is private property and the CBJ has insisted that
the owners of the golf course fence their property
off. This mostly has to do with access for
emergency vehicles should a plane crash happen, as
well as the owner's liability for people on their
property. People will have to park on the east side
of that end of Industrial Blvd. (along the white
fence that runs along Miller Const. gravel yard).
The CBJ has posted "No Parking" signs on the west
side of the road.
up after your dog: The Grateful Dogs of Juneau
reminds dog owners to pick up after their dogs. In
recent years, dog owners have made great strides in
promoting a dog friendly community by cleaning up after
their dogs. If we continue to clean up after our
dogs, we can make Juneau an even more attractive place
to live and a more dog friendly community.
