City of Lakeport Fireworks Initiative, Measure C (November 2009)
Measure C made it legal to sell state-approved fireworks in Lakeport. In the spring of 2009, the Lakeport City Council by a vote of 3-2 banned the sale of fireworks. Jim Irwin and Suzanne Lyons were the two city council members to vote against the fireworks ban.
The groups that wanted Measure c to pass were primarily groups that raised money for their charitable causes through the sale of fireworks.
Lakeport is the county seat of Lake County. At the time of the 2000 census, its population was approaching 5,000.

In December 2009, the Lakeport City Council formed a committee to develop detailed guidelines for carrying out the provisions of Measure C.
