CANANDAIGUA — City Council appears to have no problem with fireworks dealers setting up tents to sell sparklers and other Fourth of July fireworks.
But, in order to make the practice by the books, the city’s approval process will take it beyond the Independence Day holiday this year.
Members of City Council’s ordinance/charter review committee met last Tuesday after a representative of Keystone Novelties LLC, a Pennsylvania-based fireworks company, approached the city about setting up shop.
No one from the company attended the committee meeting, but representatives in recent weeks also have approached the town of Victor Planning Board about erecting a tent operation at 7635 Route 96, near the village line.
A business, such as a grocery store or drugstore, may sell fireworks in the city because it is an incidental use to the operation, city officials said.
