TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Several issues, some concerning the Mississippi state flag, were addressed at Thursday's Tupelo city council meeting.
The council voted 4-3 in favor of an ordinance to fly the state flag at city hall, city council chambers, Veterans Park and Ballard Park.
Council members Nettie Davis, Lynn Bryan and Willie Jennings voted against the ordinance.
Also at the council meeting, the city voted to send a resolution to Governor Phil Bryant and the legislature to change the state flag.
The issue of a turn lane at Endville Road was also discussed.
The council voted to send the proposal to the city traffic committee under an agreement with the mayor and council members.
Last week, Mayor Jason Shelton vetoed the proposal to build the turn lane which would be near Tupelo Christian Preparatory School.
Thursday, the mayor withdrew his objection if it went to the traffic committee first.
