Templeton Community Services District directors will discuss the future of fireworks sales and use in Templeton next month.

The meeting will include discussion of whether to continue to allow fireworks sales at vendor booths, limit the number of vendors, develop a lottery system based on the number of vendor applications, or ban fireworks altogether, a district news release said.

The public is invited to the workshop, planned for 5 p.m. July 21 in the district board’s meeting room at 206 Fifth St.

Those interested can submit comments by July 14 by clicking here or by mailing written comments to the District Office at P.O. Box 780, Templeton, CA 93465. All comments received by the deadline will be given to the board of directors before the July 21 meeting.

Meanwhile, the district is also reminding the public that the use of fireworks — including sparklers and “safe and sane” fireworks — is not permitted at Templeton Summer Concerts in the Park, held Wednesdays through Aug. 19 at Templeton Park.
