NEEDLES — Sales and use of ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks in the city, lowering the tax rate on cannabis production, quieting flamboyant paint schemes by local business and opening Jack Smith Park to increased free usage all face city council in their regular meeting of Tuesday, May 14.

Public sessions begin at 6 p.m. in council chambers at 1111 Bailey Ave.

Captain Ross Tarangle presents crime statistics for 2018 before council ponders a nearly $2.5 million contract for 2019-20.

The city is to receive the 2019 Game Changer Award of Excellence from the California Association for Local Economic Development.
