Citing severe drought conditions, the Eugene City Council has banned fireworks in the south hills. 

Facing a forecast in the 90’s through the holiday weekend, councilors held an emergency meeting Wednesday.  The result was a unanimous vote to ban all fireworks within City limits south of 18th Avenue and all areas east of Agate Street.

Chris Pryor: “But I don’t want to support anything that doesn’t have teeth behind it.”

The Eugene City Council voted to open another homeless rest stop at a work session Monday evening.  The move comes after residents of the illegal homeless camp known as Whoville objected to a previously-approved site near the Whiteaker.
