Decision looming on continuation of free OC events

OCEAN CITY —Time is running out for the city to decide whether the summer fireworks and laser shows will have to continue on a year-to-year approval, or if they may be improved by virtue of a longer-term contract.

After having let the issue sit for several months, Ocean City officials have to make a decision by September if they want to continue with the free family attractions held during the summer, as well as addressing the funding mechanism that has limited the city’s ability to bring in further events beyond what it already has.

The city’s tourism commission reviewed numbers this week purporting to show attendance at the events, although the accuracy of the count is somewhat subjective.
