At tonight's Lodi City Council meeting, Councilman Larry Hansen shared a concern that a local Boy Scout had told him at a previous meeting.

The Boy Scout pointed out that the city was not following flag protocal because the city flag was higher than the American flag in Carnegie Forum where council meetings are held. Hansen asked city staff to fix the flag poles, so the American flag is flying higher.

Councilman Bob Johnson agreed with the Boy Scouts assessment.

"I haven't been a Boy Scout for years but the (city) flag should not be higher," he said.

Johnson also suggested the city put both the city and state flag on the right side of Carnegie Forum and the American flag alone on the left side.
