Fireworks bylaw needed

Dear Editor,

Congratulations to the Harrison Hot Springs Mayor and Council for the leadership they have demonstrated through the passing of a new bylaw pertaining to a fireworks ban in their community. Similar bylaws have been enacted in most Fraser Valley communities. I have written to the Kent Council requesting some discussion regarding this topic, however I have never received notice that my concerns have been acknowledged. It is my opinion that the District Council should assume a leadership role to ensure that the citizens of the township may enjoy a peaceful and quiet community. It would be appreciated if the local Council could acknowledge receipt of citizen’s concerns.
