Sedgwick County commissioners are inviting residents of unincorporated areas of the county to a public meeting to discuss fireworks.
Commissioners are considering whether to lift the county's 30-year-old fireworks ban in unincorporated areas.
The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Dec 1 at the Cargill Learning Center at the Sedgwick County Zoo, 5555 Zoo Blvd.
Three options the commissioners will consider:
* Keep the current law, which since 1979 has made it a crime to use or possess fireworks in unincorporated areas of the county.
* Allow sales of limited types of fireworks, such as the low-yield varieties that are allowed by the city of Wichita.
* Drop all regulation of fireworks and defer to state law, which allows most types of consumer fireworks, including aerial shells and firecrackers.
Residents also will be able to submit their own recommendations to commissioners.
