Members of the area’s Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion posts are among the residents upset about the decision to remove the most visible flag in the city. Individuals and veterans groups have offered to pay for the flag, but some say military families shouldn’t have to bear that cost.

Bill Coulter revealed that the upkeep costs are only $10 a month, and he’s willing to pay for it out of his own pocket to keep the stars and stripes flying.

Coulter said he’s going to present a proposal to the city council to have individuals and veterans groups pay for the flag.

“We want to get the city out of this altogether and do it with private funding,” Coulter said.

But Coulter’s daughter, Carol Quass, said military families shouldn’t have to bear that cost.

“The vets should not have to pay for that — they’ve already paid, paid with their lives sometimes,” Quass said. “It’s sad that there’s many other things in the community that they pay for that don’t have the significance of the American flag.”

Chris “Badger” Thomas is a Veteran who served our country as an Army Combat Medic.
