Calls for Illegal Fireworks Down this Year in Lakeport

Lakeport Police Chief Brad Rasmussen gave the City Council an action report this week regarding fireworks this past July 4th holiday. At the Librrary Park event, police only had to remove one person for being under the influence and handled a call for one lost child. There were fewer calls for the usage of illegal fireworks, but there were a lot of fireworks going off all over town – especially on 11th Street near Safeway. No fires were started because of illegal firework usage this year.
