Rohnert Park We Are Better Than This (First published 7/9/21)

Voters who are in favor of banning fireworks are asked to vote Yes. Voters in favor of allowing the sale and use of “Safe and Sane” fireworks are being asked to vote No. It’s awkward verbiage. What a Yes vote means is that the city’s Ordinance (No. 954) shouldn’t be repealed. If it isn’t repealed, the ban again goes into place. A No vote then means the ordinance should be repealed and fireworks would again be allowed and legal in Rohnert Park. It would also mean the earliest any attempt to ban them by the City Council could not occur until the fall of 2022.
