Editor: Since the spring, Chatham-Kent administration have been asked by council to come up with a policy to handle the flag flying issue on municipal property.
Coun. Jubenville’s motion would have handled this in an efficient, fair-for-all, no-cost solution. Instead taxpayer money is being spent to come up with a more complex, time-consuming way.
Council has many difficult decisions to make on roads, bridges, budgets, etc. but this didn’t have to be one of those. Government flags only on municipal flagpoles.
If a group or person wants their flag flying in the breeze, the solution is simple. Buy a flagpole and some land, then your flag can be flown whenever your heart desires.
