Fireworks Discontinuation Notice:  The SlPID boards decision was unanimous in discontinuing the fireworks however, it was not sudden.  Every year, a lot of money and effort is put into the fireworks display.  The decision was made after many discussions on the legality of SlPID spending taxpayer money on this event, when our legislation is based on the district protecting the lake environment.  SLPID’s decision is to spend that amount of money on feasible items that are appropriately funded towards a healthier lake and ecosystem.  With growing concerns of heavier development around the lake and heavier lake usage,  the situations that accompany them have become SLPID’s priority over hosting fireworks. The SLPID board and management is considering the needs of the present as well as the needs of the future to protect the biodiversity, without raising the lake tax.  I hope you can understand and respect this decision.
