DAVIESS CO., Ky (WFIE) - The Confederate monument on the Daviess County Courthouse Lawn is a step closer to being relocated.

The monument relocation committee met Wednesday evening, whittling their options down to just two locations.

The top choice of the committee right now would see the statue move to the Owensboro Museum of Science and History. The second choice would be the Owensboro Art Museum.

In both instances, the committee would suggest the base of the statue be placed on the Panther Creek battlefield.

Next week, board members will meet for what could be the final time before the committee makes its recommendation to the Daviess County Fiscal Court.
