I already like you more than King!

Fireworks in Fruita? Your police chief just resigned amid grand fanfare. Did he not do anything? Oops I forgot Jared Wright was on the clock. Sorry. That “outstanding” police chief just happened to retire at the exact moment that he could take over “code enforcement.” Hmmm.

Not even on my radar Pat. You, yourself, are trying to take advantage of a crap, good ol boy situation.

I wish you good luck, I have lived in roughly 15 different counties/cities and NEVER have I seen fireworks laws enforced except for the one time an officer got hit in the face by a pop bottle rocket with his window down. In a city where ALL fireworks were banned amidst dry as tinder fir trees with barely driveway wide openings in them next to an Indian Reservation it looked and sounded like a Civil War reenactment, canons and all. Smoke so think you couldn’t see across the street after dark. The fire Chief, Police Chief and over 100 officers had a retirement party for an officer half a mile from my house once. The ordinance they set off blew out 4 windows from my house and left a 2 foot crater in my yard!!!! The report is on file!!! only thing done was replace my windows and they took up a fund for that at the retirement party. 22 homes burned down in that area over 7 years due to fireworks, some neighbors of the offenders. pets hate it, stock animals hate it, a lot of people hate it. How about making people go to the Monument to shoot off fireworks?
