EVERETT — Should firework use be banned?
The Snohomish County Council wants to know voters’ opinion on the issue in an advisory vote on the Nov. 5 ballot, Julia-Grace Sanders reported. Proposition 1 asks whether voters would support a ban on setting off fireworks in the unincorporated urban growth areas surrounding many of the county’s cities.
Fireworks are already banned in half of the county’s cities, home to more than 300,000 people. Those cities are Brier, Edmonds, Everett, Gold Bar, Lynnwood, Marysville, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo and Woodway.
