“Holiday decoration”, yeah right…..

Some homeowners in Murray, Utah are being fined for flying the American Flag.

KSTU reports, the HOA of Chestnut Place condominium community informed residents last week to take down the flags.

“I’m not taking it down, that’s one thing I won’t do.” said Erin Worthen, one of the residents asked to remove the flag.

As a result, she was fined $75 and given a notice, which states:

“All exterior decorations must be removed within 10 days following the holiday… Please remove your flag from the common area (Utah Community Association Act. 57-8a-219)”

Worthen said she was shocked at the language on the notice.

“That is not a holiday decoration,” she told KSTU. “People have died for that, it is not a holiday decoration.”

Homeowners attempted to address the issue at an HOA meeting scheduled for Thursday night, but with the room already full, and the meeting set to take place, board members canceled the meeting at the last second.
