The company has done village fireworks displays for the past 12 years, and has locked in the $40,000 annual rate through 2016. The village's payment is partially offset by donations made by residents on their water bills.

Mayor Craig Johnson said the village previously had a separate $8,000 contracts for two fireworks shows during the Tour of Elk Grove, a cycling event that is being discontinued this year.
