City manager Kathleen Trepa announced at the May 4 Winters City Council meeting that the city will be moving forward with its annual July 3 fireworks show, which hasn’t been held since 2017.
The council directed city staff to look into holding the show on April 20. At that meeting, much of the council discussion focused on addressing city staff concerns with budget, fire risk and COVID-19 restrictions. The council members all supported moving forward with the show, though some expressed concerns about private fireworks.
Trepa said the city is pulling together a small working group of staff and volunteers to help coordinate the show.
Because of similar concerns about COVID-19, the Davis City Council cancelled its annual Fourth of July fireworks show last month. The Woodland City Council followed suit last week and cancelled its festivities.
