The Amherst Select Board will not set up a special meeting to consider a request by resident Larry Kelly to fly commemorative US flags on September 11th this year. Kelly spoke to the board during a public comment session this week, but a request for the flags to be flown has to be on the agenda for them to take action, and the board doesn’t meet again until September 16th. Amherst’s policy is to fly the flags on certain holidays and only every five years on September 11th to mark the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
