As a mark of respect, and by order of President Barack Obama, Prattville Mayor Jim Byard, Jr. has ordered flags at all facilities to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Friday, January 14, 2011.

“The citizens of the City of Prattville join me in keeping those affected by the horrific events in Tucson last Saturday in our thoughts and in our prayers during these difficult days,” said Mayor Byard. “This is a sad day for democracy across America, as this tragedy unfolded at a "Congress on Your Corner" event, where everyday people were gathered meeting with their member of the United States House of Representatives,” continued the Mayor.
