The Langley City Council is expected to amend a typo in an ordinance which misstated the permitted time of discharge of fireworks in the city at its regular monthly meeting on Monday night.

The typo misstated that the time of discharge on July 4 is from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., when it should have been from 9 a.m. on July 4 to 12 a.m. on July 5. The city is recommending the change in the “best interests of the city.”

Mayor Tim Callison said Friday morning that the change will make the code enforceable. Callison added that there were no hiccups on July 4 where enforcement of the code was necessary.

“I don’t think we had any incidents where we needed to enforce it,” Callison said.”
