Former Gladstone councilor: Thanks for safely celebrating holiday
I want to first thank the Gladstone City Council for trusting the citizens to celebrate Independence Day safely by not banning all fireworks.
Second, I want to thank the Gladstone community for celebrating Independence Day safely with mostly legal fireworks. I'm also sure veterans and pet owners also appreciate the milder celebration than we have experienced the past couple of years.
Lastly, I want to thank the members of the Gladstone Police and Fire Departments for keeping us safe over the holiday weekend. Thank you as I wish everyone a safe and fun summer.
