Talks delayed on wider fireworks ban for south county

The ordinance would prohibit selling or igniting common fireworks around cities than ban them.

EVERETT — The Snohomish County Council has delayed its discussion about a proposal to ban fireworks in future annexation areas around some cities.

The conversation is set to continue in late November or early December, after the council completes its annual budget process.

The ordinance would prohibit selling or igniting common fireworks around cities that have fireworks bans in place. It would apply to future annexation areas in southwest county. The territory in question spans from Everett south to the King County line and eastward just beyond 35th Avenue SE near Mill Creek.

All but one city in that area prohibit fireworks. Some unincorporated areas within those boundaries are unclaimed for future city annexation, and would be unaffected by the proposal in its current form.
