Now that's a nice flag pole, I had too end up with an el-cheapo but in any event it does the job. Around here we have to opposite problem with nothing but sand, gravel & small rocks, anything I would put up like that would sooner or later start to lean from the high winds we get. Don't need any kind of permit for a flagpole or most anything else for that matter.

What a ripoff they have going there.


He should just ask his landlord to pull the permit for a flagpole (approx $25.00) and make sure it adheres to their rules pertaining to flagpoles (usually front line setbacks are the biggest issue with them) everything else is pretty insignificant. I cant see anyone in any town denying ANY Vet. the right to fly a flag and im sure his community will make darn sure it happens by helping him in whatever way he needs! The neighbor is very lucky they have not been harassed or expelled :lol: who in their right mind would file a complaint against honorable marine to fly a flag for the country he gave years of his life to and fought for :shock: Must be something more to this story because nobody in their right mind would file such a complaint

That flag pole is probably 40 or 50 years old. My brother found it on craigslist. Paid $200 and had to take it out our ourselves.

I don't know Sam , that thing is almost 3 feet in the ground in a 2 foot wide hole filled with concrete. I know it ain't going anywhere here unless someone hooks a bulldozer to it. LOL

Depending on the Town Rules, because it is a rental property, all property modifications MAY HAVE to be done by a contractor. Having said that, I'm sure that if he made some calls to around to local contractors and explained the situation he could find one to pull a permit for a half a bill and a bottle of Jack.
