The May 10 article titled “City douses 4th fireworks” is great, yet the catchy title is misleading. If one reads only the title, it could be taken to mean that there will be no fireworks display. Not so!

The facts: Speaking for the County, I am confident that the professional fireworks display will happen at the same time and place on the 4th of July at the Lionsback area at dark. Although the County initially received no proposals, we reached out again and have now secured a contract with a professional fireworks purveyor — Vortex Production, Inc. of Salt Lake City.

Vortex is seeking strong local adult crewmembers to install the fireworks on July 3rd and 4th. Visit for details or call Vortex at 801-580-6389. Crew must pass a background check. Vortex has already committed four of the eight crew members needed.

Vortex has already made arrangements with KCYN for music choreography.

Thank you to Charles Johnson of Vortex for coming through, and to Bryony Hill in the Grand County Council’s office for coordination of efforts.
