SALISBURY — Red, White and Boom organizers in Salisbury are requesting that the City Council return to a former practice of financially supporting Independence Day fireworks in the city.
The event is looking for a $10,000 donation and whether the city supplies the full amount, several council members want to see some kind of concession made.
At the very least, Council President Jake Day feels that “a nominal amount” of money needs to come from the city to help fund the fireworks.
“I think it’s an opportunity to fix what’s pretty embarrassing, that we don’t support our own fireworks in the city of Salisbury,” he said.
The fireworks show has become popular in the city despite being in its infancy.
