HUTCHINSON, Kansas (AP) - It appears Hutchinson area residents might see a big Fourth of July fireworks display after all.
The fireworks show was in jeopardy after a new city policy wiped out the revenue that used to pay for it.
Now, Hutchinson is contributing $10,000 toward a $15,500 show at the Kansas State Fairgrounds. The Hutchinson City Council expressed a verbal show of support for the proposal Tuesday, although a formal vote wasn't taken. City officials are drafting a contract.
In the past, revenue from fireworks vendors paid for the holiday show. But after the city banned aerial fireworks last year, no fireworks vendors applied to work in the city this year.
Eagle Communications and Showalter Fireworks have agreed to contribute the remaining $5,500.
