By
From page A11 | July 03, 2014 |

With the Fourth of July coming on Friday, Suisun City is allowing the sale of Safe and Sane fireworks at three stands – primarily as a fundraiser to support waterfront activities.

But with high fire danger, is that a mistake? Participate in this week’s poll:

    Not just yes, but HELL YES. And hey SPD, how about planting a dang patrol care near Gadwall, and getting the A__HOLE (s) that keeps setting off the illegal stuff. Sounds like no less than cherry bombs, even M80s going off around there, especially late in the evening. DO YOUR JOBS!!!!!!

    Once again, you want them to fight crime, but only at your house. Funny how things work when people think they are entitled to extra protection. I will give you advice, stay up on the 4th of July all night and take down all the plates you can and then take that list into the SPD with a video and help the situation stop. Don't demand a department to do anything, because you will be only known as the real problem 24/7

    I agree 1000 percent. No one should have fireworks period. Too dangerous at it puts all of our homes at risk.

    My doggy & I would love to go back to NO LEGAL SALES of fireworks in Suisun!!!! Her heart & bladder can't take it. My patience, sanity & lack of sleep can't take it. I'm all for fun, but...

    Everyone remembers cities in California are broke, right? Come up with replacement revenue.

    How much revenue will be spent fighting the inevitable fires and/or lawsuits, because of any fires that may have been started from those LEGAL FIREWORKS in Suisun or those taken and used over in Fairfield, which are STILL ILLEGAL there?????

    Just an FYI, Suisun city had zero - ZERO. Fires last year started by Legal fireworks. Ones again that number of fires in Suisun city started by Legal fireworks was a BIG ZERO.

    The only thing to do that makes sense is to move the 4th of July to the peak of our rainy season. Problem solved.
