I think it’s insane to sell fireworks during this hot, dry summer.
Nothing sane about fireworks.

The other Tri-Valley cities should come together and warn Dublin that any house or brush fires in their cities caused by fireworks will be charged to Dublin. This is just insane. What do these non-profits need money for at this time; they can't assemble for group activities anyway?

You're half right, Rob. Good idea to charge Dublin for fire services related to their fireworks, but non-profits need funds more than ever at this time. Our own Museum on Main has had to cancel all its planned events, with some tickets already sold. They don't know when they can re-open, but there are still expenses to be met. We can only hope people will be sensible and wear masks, obey the fireworks rules, and wash their hands. We're in this together including Dublin.

Fireworks are a VERY bad idea right now. They are a fire danger and Antifa and agitators are using them as weapons.

Support local families in need

Your contribution to the Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund will go directly to nonprofits supporting local families and children in need. Last year, Pleasanton Weekly readers contributed over $83,000 to support eight safety-net nonprofits right here in the Tri-Valley.
