DAVIESS CO., Ky. (WFIE) - The Daviess County Fiscal Court has officially named the group of five that will determine the future home of the Confederate monument currently sitting on the courthouse lawn.
Aloma Dew, Wesley Acton, Kenny Barr, Anne Damron and Tim Kline were selected by members of the court to be a part of the Confederate Monument Relocation Committee. The group is tasked with choosing the new resting place for the statue.
The Confederate monument continues to be a figure of controversy after several protests, both for and against its relocation, have been held outside the Daviess County Courthouse.
Each committee member will be responsible for taking public comments on the new location. These comments can be emailed to public officials on the county government’s official website.
The committee will have six months to look into possible sites for the monument.
