This world would be so much better off if people would just mind their own business. Whoever filed that complaint needs to wake up one morning to find their entire house completely covered up with a gigantic flag.

Be sure and MISS the SAFETY rules....



The Town of Hypoluxo said this issue is not with his flag.

"Well he can fly his flag the issue is that he has to get a building permit," said Tim Large, who heads the building department for the town.

Large said the flag pole is considered a structure.

If Schaffer does not have a permit, the flag has to come down.

What does not make sense about this story is that the flag has to come down, but not the flagpole. He has 30 days to become compliant. The flag should be able to be flown during that time. I suppose this guy will just have to get a flag holder that is attached to the side of the house.

Read the town code and it just says flag poles, doesn't exclude those attached to a house just says flag poles:

Their CODE needs permit for: "Antennas, Mast or Poles - Install or replace masts, towers for television or radio receiving-transmitting antenna extending more than 10 feet above the last anchorage, satellite dish antennas, flag poles, exterior lighting or similar items."

Suggest people email the town with your concern, others have.
