Share your opinions on fireworks’ fate

Do you have an opinion about the fate of the Donner Lake fireworks? Want to preserve them or end them? Let someone know about it.

Interested members of the community will have a chance to share their opinions on the fate of the annual Donner Lake Fireworks Display during a public forum planned from 4 to 6 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District board room on Donner Pass Road.

Town Council Member Maia Schneider and Town Manager Steve Wright made the right decision by agreeing to mediate the meeting, which will allow the public a chance to comment on a decision made by fire and law enforcement officials to cancel the fireworks next year.

The decision was made after a disturbance following the fireworks in which an officer was injured, and the agencies insist the event should be closed for reasons of public safety. They say access to the Donner Lake area is too restricted in emergencies.

Although the decision may remain unchanged, it’s important that residents’ opinions and proposals are heard in a public forum – an opportunity they were denied when officials decided in July to cancel the event.
