Abilene City Council: July 4th fireworks OK'd, pedestrian bridge in plans

ABILENE, Texas - All is clear for this summer's 4th of July firework display in Abilene.

That's just one of several items the Abilene City Council voted for at Thursday morning's meeting. The Independence Day fireworks will be on the night of Friday, July 4th at Nelson Park.
Council gave the OK on the 2014 to 2018 Capital Improvement Program. That includes the creation of a pedestrian bridge at Elm Creek and Clack. There will also be repairs on asphalt and the clubhouse at Maxwell Municipal Golf Course.

Postponed until the next meeting was a vote on an $8.5 million airport improvement program. That was pushed back while some more information is gathered.
