(KUTV) -- Governor Gary Herbert ordered that the American and Utah flags to be lowered in honor of the life and service of deceased code enforcement officer Jill Robinson on Friday.
Robinson was killed last week while attempting to conduct a follow-up investigation.
In a statement, Herbert expressed his condolences for Robinson's work in the community and as a mother, reaching those around with kindness.
Our hearts have been heavy this week reflecting on the loss of Jill Robinson. She gave so much to her community -- not simply working as a code enforcement officer, but reaching out to all around her in constant acts of kindness. Utah has lost a wonderful mother, public servant, and friend. Jeanette and I send our deepest condolences to her family, and especially to her children.
Flags will be flown at half-staff at all state facilities and public grounds from sunrise until sunset on Friday, Aug. 17. Individuals and businesses are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time.
