8.08.010 Statement of policy.

The city council of the city believes that it should take all reasonable steps to protect persons and property by limiting the sale and use of fireworks and designating an area to allow persons to shoot fireworks. A designated area for the use of fireworks will offer safety for the activity and allow the activity to be policed for illegal fireworks. (Ord. 98-561 § 1, 1998: Ord. 518 § 1, 1993)

8.08.020 Designation of area for use or discharge of common fireworks.

Any use or discharge of common fireworks within the city limits, and as allowed by RCW 70.77.395, as amended, shall be made only within the established boundaries of the city’s Memorial Park. Additionally, any use or discharge of common fireworks of a projectile type shall only be made toward and over Lake Pateros from the city’s Memorial Park. As used in this chapter, “common fireworks” shall be as defined in RCW 70.77.136, as amended; and “projectile type” common fireworks shall be any common fireworks capable of flight or projectile through explosion or combustion. (Ord. 98-561 § 2, 1998: Ord. 518 § 2, 1993)

8.08.030 Violation—Penalty.
