The idea to grant an exemption to fireworks stand operators to continue in business if the land they now are on is annexed in the August election poses interesting questions, wrapped in legality. The city council has agreed to look into what could be done legally, but a final decision is unlikely prior to the Aug. 5 election.

City Attorney Mark Piontek said the easiest way would be to change city and fire codes to permit fireworks sales in the city. However, there undoubtedly would be strong opposition to that. It probably would mean more competition for the fireworks stand operators now in business just outside the city limits. Piontek didn’t advocate changing the codes. He merely stated a fact.
