Spokane Mayor David Condon has ordered flags at all city facilities to remain lowered at half-staff to coincide with Gov. Jay Inslee’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities remain lowered on Wednesday, Nov. 20, in remembrance of Michael Knapp, Interim Police Chief for Lynden, Washington.

 Knapp was struck by a pickup truck while crossing the street to City Hall. He succumbed to his injuries the following day on Nov. 6, 2019. Mayor Condon encourages anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in this recognition to honor Knapp’s memory.

There will be a memorial service on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 1 p.m. at Christ the King Church in Bellingham.
