That’s because Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner has has issued a flag-lowering order.
Flags are to be lowered to honor and remember of Firefighter John Michael “Mike” Cummins of the Homer Fire Protection District.
All persons and entities governed by the Illinois Flag Act are to fly flags at half-staff from sunrise on February 11, 2017 to sunset on February 13, 2017.
Cummins passed away earlier this week after being involved in a traffic accident.
