(BUHLER, Kan.) — Some people want to see Buhler's city seal change and the mayor says, it's a battle that's just too expensive to fight.
After pressure from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Buhler will remove the cross from its city seal and city properties.
"I don't know if frustrated is the right word but we're all saddened that this issue has taken place and that we have to do something about the sign," says Mayor Daniel Friesen.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, which is based in Wisconsin, sent the city of Buhler a letter stating it was violating constitutional rights by having a cross in its city seal.
The mayor says the cross has been a part of the city's official seal since the late 80s.
The city consulted several law firms, which said the city would most likely lose if it took this to court.
So, it will re-design the city's seal for about $2500. The alternative is not an option.
