Confederate Statue in Owensboro Will Be Moved, with Next Location TBD
A Confederate statue sitting on the Daviess County Courthouse lawn will be moved.
But where the statue is going is still unknown.
Daviess Fiscal Court voted Thursday night to form a five-person public committee tasked with presenting the court with options on where to move the 120-year-old statue.
The Messenger-Inquirer reports those committee members will be named by members of the fiscal court, with appointments announced within six weeks.
The debate over the Owensboro statue comes amid a renewed conversation nationally over what to do with symbols depicting elements of white supremacy.
