A photo of veterans holding American and miltary flags in a parade. A Florida business was cited by the City of Jacksonville for flying military flags atop its building because it violates a city ordinance.
A city officials issued a statement about the decision:
“We are disturbed by some of the claims made about a City employee and are reviewing the facts. We are also reviewing the current ordinances regarding flags and signs to ensure accurate information was shared.
The business was issued a warning, and was not fined. Warnings are issued to provide property owners information about a possible violation, and corrective action.
I have contacted the dealership and provided the owner with the mayor’s contact information for them to discuss directly. Mayor Curry and his administration respect and appreciate those in uniform who have served and continue to serve our community, and our country.”
1. I Have directed city staff that military flags should be treated same as US flag. Let them fly. I Have reached out to the business owner & will review employee procedures. COJ employees r expected to be respectful of our customers - you, the people of Jacksonville.
