“We have the cost of the fireworks covered by a local businessman, and are working to get the costs reduced with donations of services,” said Payton via e-mail.
“But we need to raise funds for the additional $40,000 in estimated city staff time.
“We’re asking all the service clubs in Antioch and anyone who would like to contribute to do so to help cover the costs of the event, so we can provide the fireworks to the people of Antioch.”
