County, city partner in fireworks funding plan
The Moffat County Board of Commissioners agreed to join the City of Craig in an effort to encourage public participation in funding the annual Fourth of July fireworks display.
Earlier this month, the city promised to match community donations dollar-for-dollar up to $1,000. Commissioners agreed to the same funding scheme, making each dollar donated worth $3.
The commissioners’ move brings the potential for Craig to have the best-funded fireworks display ever.
In addition to the $1,000 matching funds, the county has pledged $3,000 for the display. The city will give $3,000 and officials anticipate the fire district will contribute $2,000 totalling $8,000. If community donations reach $1,000, there is a potential to reach $12,000.
An account is at Community First National Bank for community donations.
As the United States honors the many individuals who have made the ultimate sacrifice this Memorial Day, multiple ceremonies in Moffat County will pay tribute as part of the holiday.
