Church won't get new flagpole by Fourth of July
Wednesday, July 3, 2013
TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. (AP) — Aldermen in the St. Louis suburb of Town and Country are still deciding whether to allow a church to erect a large flagpole to honor veterans.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/13lfljE ) reports that St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church operates St. Nicholas Family Life Center in Town and Country. The church wants to erect a 40-foot-tall flagpole there to honor members who fought for their country. The church had hoped to have the pole up by the Fourth of July.
But Town and Country has a 35-foot limit on flagpoles. A few of the center's neighbors complained about the height at a public hearing last month, prompting aldermen to postpone the decision until after the holiday.
