    The lack of an American flag at the monument at City Hall and lack of any flag or pole at city police is most discomforting. I worked 22-plus years for the Police Department; there is no way this should be happening.

    PBA is in charge of the monument. They run fundraisers. The union has a fund. The city of Rutland has funds. With that considered, why are there no flags in mentioned places or in fact in Main Street Park?

    It is not a matter of oversight but neglect, as flags have been absent for an extended period. Even the flagpoles are in terrible shape. Goes with what national press has been inferring: This area is a mess. Canít we at least fly the flag so many have defended?
