Silly String, Hair Color Spray OK for July Fourth

Silly string and hair coloring spray are a go for the Fourth of July in Bethel

BETHEL - Silly string and hair coloring spray are a go for the Fourth of July in Bethel.
The Bethel City Council was considering banning both because of cleanup costs and the assertion the hair spray stains wood and clothes.
But council members heard stiff opposition at its meeting Tuesday.
Rebecca Meyers sells the two items and complained about the timing of the proposed amendment.
She says she arranged for her shipments to come from Seattle by barge in March and spent thousands of dollars in product and shipping.
Other members of the public also spoke against the ban. No council member moved the motion to adopt the ordinance.
Tundra Center inmates will clean up after the celebration.
