Pardon Our Mess: Tattered state flag at Augusta marina

WHERE: Flagpole in front of Riverfront Marina, off Fifth Street



WHAT: The Georgia state flag is tattered. Before Friday, Augusta’s city flag was missing from the 3-flag pole.


WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: Flags in the city are maintained by the Richmond County Parks and Recreation.


ACTION PROMISED: Darrell Bennett, the Parks and Recreation operations supervisor, sent employees to hang a new Augusta flag late last week. Bennett said his employees would look at the Georgia flag and “evaluate if it was tattered enough to be replaced.” As of Friday night, the Georgia flag had not been replaced.
