Suisun council discusses safe and sane fireworks sales

By From page A5 | October 17, 2012

SUISUN CITY — Sales of safe and sane fireworks were the major topic of discussion at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

The council passed an ordinance 4-0, with Mayor Pete Sanchez absent, to amend the city code to remove specific dates for sales of safe and sane fireworks. The state is considering whether to allow the sale of safe and sane fireworks for New Year’s celebrations.

The ordinance was followed by a resolution to update findings and policies in an earlier resolution governing the sale of safe and sane fireworks. It, too, passed on a 4-0 vote. However, the council asked that the resolution be revisited at its Nov. 20 meeting.

There was no public comment on the issue.

Also before the council was a resolution to place liens on homeowners for unpaid waste collection service changes in Suisun City. There was no public comment and the resolution passed, 4-0.

    Although I did not file out a card, not required by state law, I did comment on Jane Day saying that Businesses shouldn't have to disclose their earnings in selling fireworks. I mentioned that businesses have been doing that for years when they get a business license. I also mentioned that I am for full transparncy with public money. Jane claims that the fireworks case is different as it is a contract between two parties. I disagree as force is used by the government to get what they want in both cases and the public is entitled to transparency when their money is being spent. Jane says that will have to agree to disagree. However, if a mob (lots of people) showed up at the council meeting, I bet she wouldn't be talking that way! Shame on the public for not coming to the council meetings!!!!!

    Business don't disclose earnings for a business license. They disclose sales. Big difference. Businesses didn't sell the fireworks, non profits did. Until the non profits wrote their checks to the city it isn't public money. Whatever the net proceeds to the non profits was isn't anyones business. So Councilwoman Day is correct.
