Kent Police and the city want to remind everyone that fireworks are illegal in the City of Kent:
4th of July-NEED TO KNOW
“We wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that fireworks are illegal in the City of Kent. Kent City Code 13.05 prohibits fireworks in our City and was adopted following a voter majority on Advisory Proposition 1 in 2015
“We realize that with the cancellation of Splash, you may be tempted to light a few off this year. Please resist, be safe, and find other ways to make a memorable celebration with your families.
“You can report fireworks violations by calling our NON-EMERGENCY line 253-852-2121. Please do not use 911 to report fireworks unless there is an immediate safety concern.
“Thank you. We hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.”

… and yet I am listening to fireworks until 11:00 every night and it isn’t even July yet!! Last year the city said not to call 911 and report any fireworks because there would be no response. It is a new year and I hope this you will especially with the drought we are having!!
Stop posting this stuff as you have never enforced this since it became illegal. We listen to eat night after night year after year in the same locations just up the hill from the police station. Not hard to go after the ones doing it as the ones doing it might after night are the same houses. They do it year after year and night after night because the rules are not enforced. Don’t make a rule you won’t enforce. It just angers everyone else
