City Council reschedules vote on fireworks ban to June 16
The Lynnwood City Council has rescheduled a vote on a proposal to ban fireworks in the city to Monday, June 16.
Prior to the vote on June 16, the Council will have a work session in which the Council will discuss a third option put forth by Councilmember Ian Cotton in addition to two ordinances already under consideration. Immediately, after the June 16 work session, the Council will have a special business meeting for the vote.
“I just want to point out I don’t believe that this ordinance the way it is right now gets to the issues of what is causing the real problems,” Councilmember Van AuBuchon said in support of Cotton.
Cotton noted that there were two options under consideration.
“I’ve explored a third potential solution,” he said. “I think it is important, it’s important that we spend due diligence to get it right.”
Councilmember M. Christopher Boyer supported the idea of postponing Monday’s vote. Cotton has some ideas worth talking about, Boyer said.
The Council voted 6-1 in favor to extend the discussion of the fireworks issue to the June 16 work session. Council President Loren Simmonds was the only no vote.
