Former Lynnwood councilman challenges fireworks ban

LYNNWOOD — A former Lynnwood city councilman has announced a campaign to reverse the city's recently approved fireworks ban, which is not set to go into effect until next year.
The council approved the ban in a 4-3 vote on June 16. They talked about the issue for months before the vote.
Fireworks remain legal in Lynnwood this year, but may only be used on July 4 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
A new group, Lynnwood Citizens for Fireworks and Freedom, says the ban overrides the community's voice.
The group is starting a petition drive and is seeking signatures, former councilman Ted Hikel said Monday. The group would like to see a non-binding advisory vote on the matter on the ballot.
