GUIN - Despite growing concerns about a second wave of COVID-19 effecting proceedings, the Guin City Council voted 3-1 in favor of holding its annual July 4 fireworks show during a regular meeting over the phone on Monday, June 13.
Councilman Jerry Gann was the only member of the council to vote against holding the fireworks show due to concerns about spreading COVID-19.
Council members Kathy Alexander and Phillip Garrison were initially hesitant in approving to hold the fireworks show along with Gann, but changed their minds after mayor Max Maddox stated that attempts will be made to make sure people are properly socially distanced.
“We’re probably ‘gonna suggest that everyone stay in their car or around their family. If you’re in your car or around your family, then you’re alright,” said Maddox.
