Costs and Maintenance
The costs associated with operating the plaza are mainly focused on the costs of the flag itself, the maintenance of the flagpole (painting etc.), and the raising/lowering of the flag.
The flag is 30’x60’ in size and is flown daily. When possible, the flag is repaired, rather than replaced as the cost for replacement is approximately $3,000. The lifespan of a flag can be as much as (1) year if repaired but there are limits to the number of times a flag can be repaired. There isa currently (1) replacement flag but another should be purchased soon.
There are also flag weights that are utilized with the flag. Those have a lifespan of approximately (3) years and the cost for replacement is $300.
There is also a 50’x80’ holiday flag that is flown on the 4th of July each year but only for that day. The cost of the flag is $11,500 and although this flag is in good shape and repaired, when possible, it will eventually need to be replaced.
