The 132-foot flagpole was put up by the owners of "Pure Pleasure", near the Highway 124 and 53 split.

Officals with the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport say it exceeds the local height variance by 14 feet, and it could pose a safety issue for airplanes.

Chippewa County rules didn't require the business to get a permit for a flagpole, but Wednesday evening, the owners requested a special permit to keep it there.

The meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Eau Claire County Courthouse.
