WASCO, Calif. (KERO) — The Mayor of Wasco said he plans to propose the city raise a pride flag at city hall in honor of Pride Month.

Mayor Alex Garcia said he will bring the proposal forward during the City Council meeting Tuesday night.

Garcia said he had considered several different options to honor the remainder of Pride Month before ultimately deciding on a flag.

Wasco is not the first city in Kern to raise a flag in honor of Pride Month. The City of Delano voted to display a pride flag outside of city hall earlier this month.

The Wasco City Council meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
