Around 7pm on March 9th, at least two corners of the First National building had individuals firing flare guns up towards the top of the building at roughly 1 minute intervals. I heard and saw a dozen go off.

Anyone know what the purpose of this was?

Probably pigeon control. Some buildings in that area have nets covering them for that reason, and first national bank has done other things like shooting bottle rockets to scare off birds.

I think the netting actually confuses the birds into thinking it's vertical surface and they don't attempt to land on it. Seems like it works pretty good on the court house. I would imagine with all of the nooks and crannies on the court house architecture it would be a like nightmare with all of the birds.
