HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- It appears Hutchinson area residents might see a big Fourth of July fireworks display after all.

The fireworks show was in jeopardy after a new city policy wiped out the revenue that used to pay for it.

However, the Hutchinson City Council on Tuesday unanimously supported contributing $10,000 toward a $15,500 show at the Kansas State Fairgrounds. The council didn't vote but City Manager John Deardoff said he would work on a contract after the council expressed support.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/12M1lLZ ) that in the past, revenue from fireworks vendors paid for the holiday show. But after the city banned aerial fireworks last year, no fireworks vendors applied to work in the city this year.

Eagle Communications and Showalter Fireworks have agreed to contribute the remaining $5,500.
