Buy a Flag for Columbia

By Ralph Roy Waggener

I wanted to buy a Columbia street Flag last year. I was told the city had just bought $2800 worth; I believe that was the amount.

The City of Columbia needs to let people know what it costs per flag; that way we can pay for one or several - whatever number one can afford to buy.

I figure there is a quantity discount from whomever sells the flags to the City.

Even better: bid this purchase from several companies and even some Columbia businesses might be the best source of purchase.

In any case at least look for the best deal. Let people know what the price per flag cost is and raise the money this way. I'd bet we will have more flags this way and still not burden taxpayers who might not want to participate in the flag program.

The American way: I can if I want to, and I don't have to if I don't want to! -RALPH ROY WAGGENER, Publisher, Just for a Smile News

A note: Mayor Mark D. Harris has flag replacement and display a high priority. -EW
