Federal Way should price fireworks citiations based on operating costs

The costs incurred by the police for issuing fireworks citations, including vehicle, overtime and related overhead costs should be offset by the income from the citations themselves. And maybe a 50 percent surcharge just because.

As a rule the city should set all fines based on the cost of enforcement.

Terry Slaton,

Federal Way
