HR Council Ratifies Fireworks Ban, May Consider Earlier Start Date

Hood River City Councilors ratified last week’s emergency declaration to establish a fireworks ban earlier than the statutory July 15 date due to hot, dry, and windy conditions, and briefly discussed considering a longer window of time to prohibit their use.  City ordinances currently ban fireworks from July 15 to November 15.  Councilor Megan Saunders said it’s worth a conversation about revising that time frame.  Other councilors concurred, saying a discussion before next summer on the subject would be beneficial.
