Letter by Joel M. Carsley, Citrus Heights– [RE: Fireworks were like a war zone in Citrus Heights; Letter, July 8th] It was also a War Zone between Sylvan Road, Auburn Boulevard, Carriage, Raintree, Chivalry, Gallant Circle. Ninety-two missiles went off until 12:52 a.m., and that’s not counting the legal fireworks. No police present in this area and only one siren from an ambulance.
There is laws on the books for quiet time from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and also another law on the books saying any person who maliciously and willfully disturbs another person by loud and unreasonable noise, yet the City Council approved fireworks until 11:00 p.m., which was a farce, as you can see so one paid any attention to it. You could look around the city and see all the air missiles.
As a disabled person, and for my dog, it’s very disturbing. Where can we go? I can’t drive and taking my electric scooter out on Auburn Boulevard, it’s taking your life in someone else’s hands.
