City Council to hear bill on lifting ban on sparklers

sparklers

There’s still a chance that some sparklers and fountains could once again be part of New Years and Fourth of July celebrations on Oahu.

The Honolulu City Council deferred Bill 5 back in February.

Councilwoman Carol Fukunaga has made several proposed changes to the bill which would ease the city’s fireworks ban.

It’s now scheduled to be heard on Tuesday by the public safety committee. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. at Honolulu Hale.

The public is welcome to testify.

SECTION 2. Section 20-6.1, Revised Ordinances of Honolulu 1990, as amended “Definitions”, is amended by adding definitions of “permitted fountain” and “permitted sparkler” to be appropriately inserted and to read as follows:

“Permitted fountain” means a fountain that contains not more than 100 grams of pyrotechnic composition per article and is not prohibited by state law.”

“Permitted sparkler” means a sparkler that contains not more than 100 grams of pyrotechnic composition per article and is not prohibited by state law.”
