Lincoln City is set to join many of its coastal neighbors in outlawing personal fireworks within its city limits this summer in an attempt to reduce hazards caused by the festive explosives.

During the Lincoln City City Council’s regular meeting April 11, the council voted 5-2 to draft an ordinance that will temporarily ban the sale and use of personal fireworks this year and place an item on the November ballot to allow residents to vote on whether to make the ban permanent. Councilors Mitch Parsons and Riley Hoagland dissented during the vote.
