Groups get nod to staff 2013 Suisun fireworks sales

By From page A4 | February 21, 2013

SUISUN CITY — Three nonprofit organizations that serve Suisun City were chosen Tuesday to sell safe and sane fireworks in the city for the Independence Day holiday.

They are the Travis Vikings youth football organization, Suisun City Titans youth football organization and American Legion Post No. 182.

Six nonprofits applied. The three were chosen by a drawing.

This will be the second year safe and sane fireworks are sold in the city. In 2012, Suisun City got $48,639 from its 52 percent of the profits from the three fireworks stands. Another $24,987 came from the 12 percent surcharge the city put on the sales, according to figures released by the city.

    Google earth view / satellite photos of Suisun reveal some very interesting back yards that the city should have done something about. I've identified properties that are being used as junkyards with numerous inoperative junk vehicles, boats and trucks dumped into backyards with an equal number of junk vehicles in the driveways and street. Go see for yourself. Hint---2 of the neighborhood junkyards are on the back of neighborhoods facing highway 12 and are easy to find. Pintail and Montebello Vista.
