The City of Hamilton is again budgeting $2,500 for a public fireworks display July 4th of 2012.
Mayor Jerry Steele said the same account was opened last year and only a last minute large donation allowed the display to happen. He said the cost was about $12,000.
In a letter to Hamilton businesses, Steele said that the event needs to be funded much earlier this year for Hamilton to have a fireworks display. He said the supplier will need to know shortly after the first of the year to place the order for the aerial bombs. He said any donation would be appreciated.
