Under the latest change, fireworks are only permitted on July 3, the Fourth of July, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day.

Previously, fireworks were allowed from June 23 to July 6.

Commercial fireworks displays will only be permitted on July 3-5, unless specifically authorized by the city manager.

Councilors Mike Clark and Jennifer Yeh voted against the change, with Clark calling it "nonsense."
