Daviess Co. Monument Relocation Committee create timeline for progress

DAVIESS CO., Ky. (WFIE) - The Daviess County Monument Relocation Committee met Wednesday evening.

The members have been meeting virtually to discuss due to COVID-19.

The committee is deciding where a confederate statue that sits on the Daviess County Court House lawn will move to.

The Monument Relocation Committee structured a timeline to organize their progress moving forward. They’ll stop accepting suggestions for the statue’s future location on October 20.

The committee will then meet on October 28 at 4:30 p.m. to choose the top suggested sites. They’ll then contact those sites to see if moving the statue there would be an option.

They’re expected to find a new location for the monument by early March of 2021.

Officials say there are going to make recommendations in November and approve on November 11.
