Here’s an update from the City on police calls for illegal fireworks around the 4th of July:
The community was relatively quiet over the Fourth of July weekend with regard to fireworks. This can be seen in the number of firework-related calls to Police: On July 3 night-shift officers were dispatched to 10 fireworks-related calls. On July 4, night-shift officers were dispatched to 23 fireworks-related calls.
These results are due in part to our efforts to get the word out via newsletter, web site and press releases that fireworks are illegal in Mountlake Terrace. Additionally, with Public Works crews posted “Fireworks Prohibited” signs at all major roads leading into the City the last week in June.
