Besides the fire danger I am a Viet Nam vet and after my last tour I had PTSD and the fire works would really set me off so now I still go tp bed on the 4th with ear plugs in.

Yes, to not ban fireworks when the conditions are so right for fires to burn and destroy homes from people who are just careless and inconsiderate warrants a ban. Allow profession fireworks, see the show, celebrate. Just humans being typically irresponsible specially when conditions are bad.

I'd rather my home didn't burn to the ground than light a couple sparklers.

I think we can do without a little pleasure for the sake of less fires and the public's health.

Yes fireworks have always been a problem, causing fires and injuries, not to mention noise pollution for people who go to bed early. With the fire danger in our area, I think it is terribly irresponsible to allow any fireworks in any county!!! Ban them! Ban them ALL!

I would support it, but it's pretty useless if police won't enforce it.

We need to be good little puppets. We need to go to work pay taxes and go home and close the door behind us. Get up and do it again. NOTHING ELSE!

No, that's going overboard!

This is ridiculous, that what independence day is all about is the fireworks, how about doing some forest management to prevent wildfires

If people would be more caustious and follow the current rules and regulations regarding fireworks we wouldn't have as much of an issue. Having small fireworks in the driveway and kids with sparklers is a huge fire hazzard especially if you're paying attention and have a hose ready just in case.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
