    The discussion of planning was held again at Tuesday’s meeting of the Common Council. City staff, including Assistant Fire Chief Keith Eaton, requested direction on the planning of this year’s display. Much of the issue of planning the event centered on the combination of a firework vendors, a venue and day in which the fireworks would be lit, as well as the city’s insurance requirement for this dangerous activity.

    With no group stepping forward to take on the task of fundraising for this year’s fireworks as in past years, the task fell to the city. According to Eaton, finding a vendor that can meet the financial requirements of the city is not an issue. Many of the vendors that have been used by Kingman in the past have already made offers to provide for this year’s show. However, city staff have run into an issue with finding a vendor that can meet the City’s insurance requirement.

    Insurance for a fireworks display has become very important to the city as of late. However, as Human Resources Director Jackie Walker has stated, “It’s impossible to predict the value of a case.”

    Walker and staff did have a recommendation of at least $5 million in coverage based on past cases, as well as the requirements set for neighboring cities. The issue came when vendors offered $1 million in coverage, leaving the city responsible for the other $4 million.

    Another item that needed to be planned was the day of the display.

    “We feel we can get a better bang for our buck, if we did this not on the Fourth of July, but on the weekend before,” City Manager John Dougherty said.

    Dougherty reasoning was that more vendors would be able to provide better service if held before the Fourth of July because they are so busy on the actual holiday. This was quickly decided against however.

    “I’m a traditionalist, I would rather it happen on the Fourth of July,” Councilwoman Jamie Scott Stehly said.

    Discussion was also held on the location that the display would be held. The council learned that the event could be held on city property, such as the parks, in order to ease the financial burden. However, these venues would allow only for close proximity fireworks. If the city wanted larger scale fireworks, a separate venue such as the fairgrounds, would have to be used.

    The City Council has decided to meet again in the near future to further discuss with more direction and detail still needed to plan the event.

    During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 actually occurred on July 2, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve an answer of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain rule.After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been served by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it two days later on July 4. Daily earlier, John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:
