Flag Disposal Box

    In partnership with the National Association of Counties, the National Flag Foundation and the National Sheriff's Association, Dubois County has installed a flag retirement box, at no cost to the county, at the Dubois County Courthouse near the main entrance.  Flags should be folded respectfully before being placed in the box.

    The United States Flag Code prescribes flag etiguette - everthing from flying it near other flags to instructions   on how to raise and lower it.  "The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display,   should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning," says the code.

        Members of the Boy Scouts, American Legion, or VFW will be responsible for the proper disposal of the worn flags.

    "This centrally-located drop-off provides a convenient location for Dubois County Citizens to respectfully dispose  of old or worn out flags" said Dubois County Treasurer Kitty Merkley.  The drop-off box will be available during normal courthouse business hours: Monday through Friday from 8:00 - 4:00, excluding Holidays.

    Said NACo Executive Director Matthew Chase, "We are pleased to be able to partner in the provision of these flag retirement boxes.  Proper disposal of the U.S. flag goes hand in hand with the commitment we make to public service while simultaneously benefiting our residents."

Treasurer Kitty Merkley reminds taxpayers the Fall installment of property taxes is due on November 13, 2017.  The Courthouse will be closed on Friday, November 10, 2017 in observance of Veteran's Day.
