"We don't feel it's a decision the Chamber should make because the fireworks belong to the people. They are funded by the people and area businesses therefore they are the ones who should decide," said Ashley O'Dell, Chamber outreach coordinator.Votes may be cast through an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6NYM6BD.
