When you are hungry and a little moody, it’s called “hangry” so, if you are unhappy with the fireworks plans this year, can we assume you are “bang!ry?”
Well, no matter what it’s called, not everyone is happy with the plan to move Eau Claire’s Fourth of July fireworks show to Plank Hill.
Councilman Andrew Werthmann represents the East Hill neighborhood, he’s worried what moving the fireworks show that close to the neighborhood will mean. Werthmann was the lone no vote on the proposal to move the fireworks from Carson Park. Werthmann says he’s also concerned about the Forest Hill Cemetery.
He doesn’t want people to crowd the cemetery to watch the show, and he doesn’t want to see any damage to the headstones in the cemetery.
