State reverses flag ban at Mass. housing complex
Mass. reverses flag ban at housing complex, calls it 'mistake ... being corrected immediately'
By The Associated Press

WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) The state has stepped in to reverse a decision by a Massachusetts town's housing authority that barred residents from flying U.S. flags outside their homes.

A spokesman for the state Department of Housing and Community Development said Thursday that the flag ban was "a mistake that is being corrected immediately."

The Wrentham Housing Authority notified residents of the policy through a letter taped to their doors Wednesday.



The unsigned letter says the move was made after a tenant made "repeated" complaints to the state housing department over the Fourth of July holiday.

Eighty-two-year-old tenant Barbara Marshall told The Sun Chronicle (http://bit.ly/OzGXE4 ) that she had no intention of removing the flag flying outside her home despite the order.

No one at the housing authority would comment.
