The warning didn't sit well with a customer-a military veteran who told Power that he thought it was wrong to take down the flags. I have ordered a review of the actions of the employee and pending the completion of that review, the employee and her supervisor have been placed on leave. "I know that our customer base would love to see me say, 'Fire her, ' but I hate to see anybody lose their job".

"They told us to take them down or go to court over it".

According to WJXT, Power said the citation was issued to Jaguar Power Sports because the rooftop flags, which includes two United States flags, a Jacksonville Jaguars flag and flags representing each military branch, were in violation of city code.

"We support our military and veterans", he wrote, "and we appreciate the businesses who honor their service". Once a review of the actions in this matter is complete, appropriate corrective action will be enforced for any wrongdoing. "I'm retired. I'm a veteran". "My team is working with the city's Office of General Counsel to bring clarity to the relevant city laws".
