A flag-flying policy for government buildings in Door County will be discussed at the next Highway and Facilities Committee meeting. The committee is looking to recommend to the Door County Board of Supervisors an established policy that will cover procedures at all the flag pole sites that are on government property in the county.
Highway and Facilities Chair Roy Englebert says the county needs to determine exactly how many flag poles are on government property and a specific policy to determine how the United States flag is to be flown in relation to other flags displayed.
The State of Wisconsin received national attention in June when Governor Tony Evers ordered a rainbow flag above the state Capitol in June in honor of Pride Month which was criticized by some lawmakers for being divisive, while others hailed it as a sign of inclusivity.
The Door County Highway and Facilities Committee also reviewed the final planning for the Door County Museum and Archives Project with hopes to bring the final cost estimates to redesign the inside of the building on North 4th Avenue to the County Board soon. Englebert adds that the committee also approved a graveled accessibility path plan for Cave Point which now will go before the Door County Board at its meeting next Tuesday.
