Glenwood to reschedule Fourth of July fireworks

After the Fourth of July, when would be the best time to launch a fireworks display? That’s a question facing the Glenwood Springs City Council at its regular meeting set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The display was postponed because of dry conditions, but must be rescheduled before the end of the year. Western Enterprises, the pyrotechnic company hired to put on this year’s Independence Day show, reminded city officials to reschedule the show soon, or there won’t be enough time for the company to properly plan for the event. “Since we are rapidly approaching the last quarter of 2002, we recognize that it is extremely important to remind everyone so they will have adequate time to determine the reschedule date,” the letter said.City Council will also receive the city’s financial report for the first six months of 2002. The report shows an overall sales tax revenue decrease of 2.6 percent through June.Council will mull over the details as it gets ready to tackle the 2003 budget, which also will be presented to council at the meeting Thursday. During the meeting, City Council is also expected to:-Make appointments to the Ad Hoc Airport Committee, the Colorado Big Country Resource Conservation and Development and Planning and Zoning Commission. -Award the bid for the Central Valley interceptor sewer replacement. -Discuss a policy for residents outside city limits requesting city water service. -Consider a request for city participation in the proposed annexation of the Dever property. -Consider approval of an ordinance amending the city’s school land dedications. Before the regular meeting, City Council will hold a work session at 5 p.m. to discuss the progress on the design of the South Glenwood Bridge.
