Staff Report

MIDLAND - The Patriot Guard will still be hitting the road to honor our veterans.

On Thursday, the City of Midland cut them a break on the Special Events Ordinance.

The Patriot Guard had appealed to the City Council saying they couldn't afford the $2 million insurance policy.

Now they don't have to worry about that.

The city says they will consider them as an honor procession, similar to a funeral procession.

That means they don't have to get the insurance or the special event permit.

The Patriot Guard escorts veterans and veteran memorial processions.
