When to lower the flag

IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Iowa City has cleared up its rules on when to lower our nation's flag to half-staff.

The city's been following a 1971 law, which wasn't very specific on when lowering flags to half-staff was necessary. The city council unanimously passed a resolution, clarifying that the city manager can now give the order to lower flags.
