The City Council meeting on Monday, April 18, began with the MICA Board of Directors presenting a $5,000 check.
MICA’s President Dianna Dohm presented the check to City Council Chairman Bob Brown with the other Council members looking on. As it has for almost 10 years, the Marco Island Civic Association contributed $5,000 toward the Fourth of July Fireworks Display.
This year the fireworks’ cost is $52,000, up $10,000 from last year. The City of Marco Island pays half of the total and the remaining is paid by donations from businesses and individuals.
Look for the spectacular fireworks display in the skies over Marco Island about 9 p.m. on Monday, July Fourth. They will be shot from a barge situated in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately mid-beach.
If you would like to make a contribution, please make checks payable to the City of Marco Island and write “July Fourth Fireworks” in the note. Mail to 500 Bald Eagle Drive, Marco Island, FL 34145.
