Residents might be able to set off fireworks during an upcoming Fourth of July if the Lodi City Council decides to allow the sale and use of state-approved fireworks.

Stockton lifted its ban in May of last year and started allowing nonprofits to sell fireworks. Then TNT Fireworks, a private company, asked Lodi several months ago to review its ban, Lodi Fire Chief Kevin Donnelly said.

    Nothing celebrates the birth of our country like blowing a small par of it up. (to paraphrase the Simpsons). I miss block gatherings with every family contributing a few fireworks so everyone has a big show.

    It's not like people haven't been setting off fireworks all this time. The city of Lodi
    needs to realize this and just lift the ban so people don't have to sneak around anymore
    to light off fireworks.
