Mayor's Statement on Today's Court Ruling on the ownership of and disposition of the Confederate Monument.

June 19, 2017 | 2 min reading time

From the Mayor:

"A hearing was held Monday afternoon in Judge Dierker's court to consider the ownership of and disposition of the Confederate Monument. 

I believe the city owns the monument but that will ultimately be determined by the courts. There are a number of statues in our parks and around our regions. If someone were to come forward and claim to own another statue, what will the outcome be?"
