The City Council hereby finds and declares that metallic balloons, when released outdoors, have a propensity to get tangled in high voltage power lines and cause short circuiting, power outages, fire, explosions, and power lines falling to the ground. These interruptions of power disrupt and endanger the lives of the residents of the city. Therefore the use of metallic balloons is discouraged, especially when large quantities are used for advertising or other commercial use.
