For the next two weeks, don't be alarmed if you don't see the usual flags flying in front of the county courthouse.
The flagpole on the front lawn of the Morris County Courthouse on Washington Street in Morristown will be painted this weekend and will need about two weeks to cure.
Morris County officials want the public to know that flags will not be flying from the flagpole during that time. In the interim, however, an American flag will be placed outside of the front entrance to the courthouse during regular business hours.
Flags will again be flown as soon as the flagpole is ready.
