Bethel council waits too long to ban 'silly string' for July Fourth

From KYUK: The Bethel City Council, faced with objections from a vendor who'd already bought a load of silly string, decided not to ban the annoying stuff over the Fourth of July holiday. Other residents objected to the ban too.

Kids will be free to spray silly string and hair coloring spray during July 4 festivities after the Bethel City Council failed to vote Tuesday night on an ordinance that would have banned their sale between June 15 through July 15. ...

The proposal was first brought before the council May 28th.  According to the ordinance, the hair coloring spray stains wood and clothing and the cleanup is costly.

Jail inmates will do the cleanup this year, says KYUK.
