POUND RIDGE, N.Y. -- For those planning on viewing fireworks in Pound Ridge to celebrate Independence Day, be ready to pay if you are not a resident of the town.
For the first time, the town will be charging non-residents $30 per car to join the celebration that begins at dusk on Saturday, July 2 at Pound Ridge Town Park.
Town officials said the charge is to help recoup cost associated with hiring a fireworks contractor at a price tag of at least $7,000, and for police overtime.
Pound Ridge residents will need town parking permits to enter. Non-residents will need $30 in cash.
