Nothing says the Fourth of July like fireworks. And thanks to Grand Sakwa, firm which plans to build housing along North Maple Road, the City of Saline will have its first Fourth of July Fireworks show in years – if city council approves a request Monday.

Mayor Brian Marl confirmed the issue will appear on Monday’s agenda. Marl said Grand Sakwa generously offered to pay for the entire show. The fireworks would be shot from Liberty School – with the same configuration as the sesquicentennial fireworks display in 2016.

“This all came together very quickly. The request came in not even two weeks ago and it requires a lot of logistical work. But it promises to be a very nice and very professional fireworks display,” Marl said.

Marl said Grand Sakwa has a great reputation, not only as a builder, but as a supporter of the communities in which they work.

Last week, city council approved a 425 Annexation agreement to annex 72 acres of property, owned by the Layher family, from Pittsfield Township. The original annexation agreement was reached in the 1980s.
