Title
CONSIDER RESOLUTION NO. 20-086 TEMPORARILY SUSPENDING THE RETAIL SALE OF SAFE & SANE FIREWORKS OR TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF RETAIL SALE OF SAFE & SANE FIREWORKS AND TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF DISCHARGE OR USE OF SAFE & SANE FIREWORKS FOR 2020 (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

At the Council meeting on May 19, 2020, a motion was made for a temporary suspension of issuing fireworks permits, resulting in suspending Safe & Sane fireworks sales this season. Due to an abundance of caution because of the COVID-19 ("coronavirus") pandemic and to adhere to the safer-at-home order, the fireworks permit process will be suspended and would schedule to resume in 2021.
While the motion clearly suspended the sale of Safe & Sane fireworks, it became apparent after the meeting that there were different interpretations as to whether that motion included the use of Safe & Sane fireworks in Carson. The recommendation provides the option of suspending sales only (Option 1) or suspending both sales and use (Option 2).
