Crestview Council seeks public input on Confederate flag

"It’s really poorly placed," he said.

 Cadle and council member Shannon Hayes said they have received little public input on the issue, but they want to hear from more residents.

Hayes shares Coleman’s concern, but he said he wants to find "a workable solution."

"I don't have mixed feelings about it, but I do have concern for our citizens," he said.  

Public Services Director Wayne Steele said the city maintains the memorial’s grounds, treating it as a right of way. Still, it is unclear who holds the property's land title. The council voted unanimously for Steele to conduct a title search.  

What is certain, he said, is that “the city of Crestview does not provide the Confederate flags for this memorial. The flags are donated by the family and friends of William ‘Bill’ Lundy."
