THE SALT LAKE CITY COUNCIL, TUESDAY NIGHT, UNANIMOUSLY OVERTURNED MAYOR RALPH BECKER'S PLAN TO KILL FIREWORKS DISPLAYS -- ON THE 4TH AND 24TH OF JULY -- DUE TO AIR POLLUTION CONCERNS.

CITY OFFICIALS RESTORED THE 40-THOUSAND DOLLAR BUDGET, FOR THE SHOWS... AT JORDAN PARK, ON THE 4TH... AND LIBERTY PARK, THREE WEEKS LATER.

AUTHORITIES SAY, THE FIREWORKS DISPLAYS COULD STILL BE CANCELLED, IF AIR QUALITY -- ON THE DAY OF THE SHOW -- IS TOO POOR.

OTHERWISE, THEY'RE A GO.
