Raytown Board of Aldermen attempt to change rules on Fireworks

On Tuesday June 19th the Raytown Board of Aldermen attempted to change the laws governing the use of fireworks in Raytown. The reason I use the word attempted is that they actually failed to vote on the ordinance.  The actual voting was on an amendment to the ordinance. The video clearly shows that the actual ordinance was not voted on.

The proposed changes would allow for shooting off fireworks for 4 days instead of 1, allow the use of Roman Candles, and strike the section requiring adult supervision of minors under the age of 16.  It also allows for the shooting of fireworks on New Years Eve.

There was also an interesting discussion between Alderman Black and Chief Lynch concerning the Police Dept. requesting to be paid by Parks and Rec. to patrol the park for people setting off fireworks (which is illegal in Raytown). Chief Lynch cited force reduction due to budget cuts as a reason more attention cannot be given to patrolling Parks. Alderman Black attempted to bring up that this was the same policy that existed before the budget cuts, but did not get far on this point.

Raytown Online has no immediate knowledge about past actions concerning the parks on the 4th of July, but does know that the Raytown Police Dept. has ask for overtime payment from the parks to patrol Super Splash and the Summer Music and Arts festival in the past.
