NEW COMMUNITY FLAGPOLE AIMS TO SUPPORT AWARENESS OF GROUPS, CAUSES IN MINTO
MINTO, ON - The Town of Minto has installed a new community flagpole on the grounds of the municipal office. This designated flagpole will be made available to community organizations who wish to fly a flag in honour of an event or a special cause. The intention is for the community flagpole to be used as a tool for bringing attention to issues that are important to community groups and to Town of Minto residents.
Requests to use the community flag pole are to be submitted to the Clerk’s Office for approval. The Municipality will not approve applications from organizations in support of political parties, commercial organizations, religious groups, or groups that support social or racial intolerance, violence or hatred.
The Municipality will collaborate with any community group making use of the flag pole to advise the public of the significance of the flag being flown. During such times when there is no community organization’s flag on the flag pole, the municipal flag will be flown.
Community groups interested in having a flag flown are encouraged to consult the Town of Minto’s Flag Policy, which can be found at the municipal office or under the Policies & Procedures section of the municipal web site.
