After some discussion surrounding safety, the board voted unanimously to lift the ban.

Boy convinces town to overturn century-old law banning snowball fights
The ban on snowball fights is part of a larger ordinance that makes it illegal to throw or shoot stones or missiles at people, animals, buildings, trees, or any other public or private property or vehicles.
Shortly after the meeting, Best was granted the opportunity to throw the first legal snowball.
After a month of preparation, during which he wrote letters with classmates to support his cause, Dane was primed to appeal to his audience's sense of history and the march of human progress.
"He did a brief little introduction about who he was and why he was there, then he went through his PowerPoint presentation and presented evidence to the board", he said. "Today's kids need a reason to play outside".
Dane has a guinea pig, which is illegal in Severance, too.
Although he faced hard questions from the board-including: "Can we amend this ordinance to say that if you're over 60, no one can throw a snowball at you?"-officials were impressed with the boy's performance and agreed to repeal the ban". He then worked with Mayor Don McLeod and his parents to figure out exactly what steps needed to be taken to amend the ban on snowballs from the ordinance.
"We are proud of him for taking initiative to make some change, no matter how small it may be", Derrick Best, Dane's father, told CBS Denver.
Dane's arguments in favor of throwing snowballs resulted in a unanimous vote to repeal the 98-year-old ban.
