City Hall Flagpole experiencing mechanical issue, preventing flags from being lowered to half-staff

North Bend City Hall

The City of North Bend is aware that American flags were ordered to be lowered to half-staff after an attack at a security checkpoint at the U.S. Capitol grounds took the life of a U.S. Capitol Police officer on April 2nd.

Unfortunately, the flagpole at North Bend City Hall is currently experiencing mechanical issues, preventing the crank from lowering the flag. The City is working on a repair, but it will most likely not be an immediate or easy problem to fix.

The City regrets that it could not lower the flag to half-staff to honor the fallen police officer, and offers heartfelt condolences to all impacted by this tragedy at the U.S. Capitol Grounds in Washington, D.C.
