EUGENE, Ore. -- The Eugene City Council is moving forward with stricter fireworks regulations.
They held a work session to hash out several concerns with the wording of the proposed ordinance and now it will go to a public hearing.
A couple of council members are worried about the fact that if it passes, retailers could still sell banned fireworks in Eugene.
"What I don't want to do is walk in Fred Meyer to buy a pack of fireworks and suddenly realize some of these I can't fire off and I didn't know that. So I would reiterate, we need to have some sort of notification at points of sale, and even including major retails - Walmart, Fred Meyer, places like that," said Chris Pryor, councilman.
Prior ended up supporting the proposal and it will now go to a public hearing.
