Florida business claims citation for flying military flags

Florida business claims citation for flying military flags

A Jacksonville business won its feud with the City of Jacksonville after city employees cited the shop for flying military flags.

The inspector was identified as Melinda Power.

Surveillance video shows the inspector getting in the face of a customer, who was upset because he is a veteran.

Jaguar Power Sports said a USA soldier serving in Germany called them to say he supports them flying the flags.

The business owner later updated his video to say, "The city of Jacksonville is working with our company to make sure things like this does not happen again".

The man reportedly replied, "I took three bullets to the leg".

A Jacksonville business will be able to keep its military flags flying after a city inspector issued a citation Monday demanding that they be taken down.

"She turned around at the door and said to me, in a very loud voice that what I did for this country did not matter", said the veteran who told the station that he wanted to remain anonymous.

The post said a city employee came into the business, cited the business for having the flags and told a veteran inside of the store that he did "nothing for our country".

Curry's chief of staff said the mayor's office was "disturbed" by the alleged behavior of Power and the matter is being reviewed.

He added county employees are expected to be respectful and that employee procedures will be reviewed. We are also reviewing the current ordinances regarding flags and signs to ensure accurate information was shared.

But just hours earlier, two city workers delivered a warning to the business for the flags.

By 6 p.m. Monday, Jaguar Power Sports had posted another video, thanking viewers for alerting city officials. Warnings are issued to provide property owners information about a possible violation, and corrective action. "I'm here to discuss this with the owner".

The store manager for Jaguar Power Sports, a motorcycle dealership at 4680 Blanding Blvd., posted the rant to social media. "Mayor Curry and his administration respect and appreciate those in uniform who have served and continue to serve our community, and our country".
