"I thought it was crazy," Dane Best told KDVR. "Little kids should be allowed to throw snowballs at each other."
Best gave a three-minute presentation to the board, telling them “The children of Severance want the opportunity to have a snowball fight like the rest of the world. The law was created many years ago. Today's kids need a reason to play outside."
The board voted unanimously to update the language in the ordinance to legalize snowball fights, KDVR reported.
Moments later, Severance Mayor Don McLeod stepped outside and handed two snowballs to Dane and his 4-year-old brother, Dax. The boys then threw the first legal snowballs in the town's history, the Tribune reported.
"You can make any change and it doesn't require an age," McLeod told KDVR. "Anybody can be involved in our democracy and anybody can make changes."
