Attention: City of Rocklin
Today I am not writing about our local real estate market because it has recently come to my attention the City of Rocklin is intending to make a change in the regulation of 4th of July fireworks sales which will limit the number of locations and financially damage many of the valuable non-profit organizations who count on the proceeds to support their programs all year long. I feel this is an important change and one worth calling attention to.
For one week each year the State of California allows non-profits to sell fireworks to benefit their organizations. These firework sales help send kids to camp, purchase gear for our local football teams, get uniforms for cheerleaders, supply food for food banks, create shelter for battered and abused women, homes for children, send youth on mission trips and overall support our community. In addition, these fireworks sales create thousands of tax dollars for Rocklin.
Even with all of these benefits, the city of Rocklin is choosing to unnecessarily restrict the firework sales in the city. Because of the time and effort to inspect and monitor the booths, the city wants to limit the number of non-profits who can sell within the city limits. They are allowing the inconvenience of one week a year to determine the profitable outcome of the years to come and financially damaging non-profit organizations which provide valuable services to the community. Instead of looking for creative ways to regulate these firework booths, like so many cities have done, they are proposing to make their job easier at the expense of the non-profit sellers of fireworks.
If you agree helping non-profit organizations helps the community contact the City of Rocklin leaders and let them know how you feel. Here are a few email addresses:
