Lompoc Fire Extends Application Period for Permits to Sell Fireworks

On Jan. 15, the Lompoc Fire Department began accepting applications from qualified Lompoc-based nonprofit groups to be entered into this year’s fireworks-permit lottery. Due to some confusion regarding the filing deadline, the filing period has been extended to Feb. 9.

Permits to sell “safe and sane fireworks” will be limited to six sale stands and locations. Permits will be issued only to organized and established nonprofit organizations within the Lompoc city limits meeting the definition and required criteria as outlined in the City of Lompoc Ordinance 1591(13) and 1594 (13). This year, six qualified nonprofit groups will be chosen by lottery.

Applications may be filed up to and including Feb. 9.

Applicants shall be notified by Feb. 20 of the disapproval of any lottery application. The lottery to be held for determining which nonprofit organizations are eligible for such permits will occur on or before March 2. All nonprofit organizations whose applications have been selected shall have up to and including March 31 to submit all information required by Section 8.28.060l.

The required application packets are available at Lompoc Fire Station One and must be picked up in person by an adult representative of the nonprofit group Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Nonprofit groups other then the Lompoc Unified School District Education Foundation, who were granted a permit in 2014, are not eligible for the 2015 lottery.

For more information, contact Fire Chief Kurt Latipow at 805.315.7087 or [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
