LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) -A town of Lexington business owner says he's being forced to remove 10 flags he placed outside of his business to celebrate the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. 

Bob Michaelis of Michaelis Mattress Company in Lexington says he was asked to remove the patriotic display because it violates a 1999 town ordinance. According to the town ordinance, only three flags that are not duplicates of each other can be displayed in "restricted and intense development districts."

Michaelis, a Marine, says he wanted to "show appreciation to our troops" with the display.
