Fireworks will explode over Angle Lake this Fourth of July, partially funded by a $10,000 donation from the city of SeaTac.
SeaTac lawmakers voted 5-2 on April 12 to approve the controversial contribution. Councilman Rick Forschler and Councilwoman Pam Fernald voted against the donation to the Angle Lake Shore Club, which puts on the display. About $7,000 is also being raised from private donations.
Lawmakers made it clear that this is the last year the city will contribute. Several council members urged the club in future years to seek private donations for the entire cost.
Deputy Mayor Gene Fisher said the contribution had already been earmarked in the budget for this year. The International Festival parade had previously been cancelled to free up money in the budget for the fireworks, according to city officials. City Manager Todd Cutts noted the festival will go on without the parade.
Councilman Tony Anderson said the council began approving the fireworks subsidy several years ago after discharging of private fireworks was banned in SeaTac. He added that public displays with permits are allowed.
SeaTac lawmakers are expected to vote April 12 on whether to contribute $10,000 in city funds for a Fourth of July fireworks display at Angle Lake.
The show is put on by the Angle Lake Shore Club, a homeowners and renters social association. Angle Lake Park is kept open on the holiday night so the public can view the display from the park.
If the funds are approved, indications from the March 22 council meeting are that 2011 will be the final year for the city's contribution. Lawmakers and audience members suggested that a vigorous fund raising effort be undertaken in subsequent years in involving SeaTac residents and business people. Currently, about $7,000 is raised through private donations.
Mayor Terry Anderson suggested a decision on the funds be delayed until the April 12 meeting after Councilwoman Pam Fernald maintained that the council had previously banned all fireworks in SeaTac.
"It is ludicrous to give money for something deemed illegal," Fernald declared.
