American flag at City Hall will be lowered to half-staff

 

On Sunday, May 23, at 8:00am, the City of St. Augustine will lower the American flag to half-staff in honor of former Mayor George Gardner.

As part of the City’s protocol to honor former elected officials when they pass away, the American flag in front of City Hall traditionally is flown at half-staff on the day of their internment.  However, given extenuating circumstances due to COVID, City Manager John Regan requested an alternate date.  “I believe this is an important and symbolic gesture to recognize Mayor Gardner and his lasting contributions to the community appropriately,” Regan said.  “Given the uncertainty of the family’s final arrangements, this day was chosen to celebrate Mayor Gardner’s life as it would have been his 84th birthday.”

The flag will be raised again at 5:00pm on Sunday, May 23.
