(HAYS, Kan.) — Residents could learn whether fireworks will be allowed in the City of Hays next Independence Day.
City Manager Toby Dougherty presented two main options to the Hays City Commission Thursday afternoon during its work session. Each option detailed modifications to the current fireworks ordinance. The first option would be to ban the sale of use of fireworks. The second option would be to allow city commissioners to decide whether to ban fireworks at the last regular commission meeting in June.
This year, commissioners voted to ban fireworks to due to dry conditions caused by drought. The move created a mixed reaction amongst residents and vendors.
Tonight, commissioners could vote to approve either option or move vote to a later date. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m
