Ocala mayor comments on flag controversy
City plans to tweak ordinance after uproar
OCALA, Fla – The mayor of Ocala is speaking out about a flag controversy involving a business owner who says the city violated his constitutional rights.
Keith Greenberg says city officials sent him a letter saying he had to take down his Gadsden Flag.
Greenberg says he was just being patriotic, but city leaders say it is a violation of a 50-year-old ordinance.
After receiving what he calls hundreds of "vulgar complaints", Mayor Kent Gwinn told the Ocala Star-Banner the city is working to fix the issue.
Gwinn says the citation against Greenberg, has been withdrawn. He also says the city council plans to tweak that ordinance.
