The next time you're driving by the High River ag grounds and notice the flags aren't at half-mast when they should be, don't worry.

It's just a matter of practicality.

The flags along Centre Street near the ag grounds are on poles that just don't allow for them to be raised and lowered easily.

Council on Monday passed an amendment to its Flag Bylaw to recognize the situation.

Flags at the Town and Foothills County administration building will continue to be flown according to the policy.
