The Daviess County Monument Relocation Committee voted to recommend two new locations to house the county's Confederate statue.
The decision follows an August vote by County Commissioners to remove the statue from the courthouse lawn. However, the fiscal court recommended that the statue be relocated instead of torn down.
The five-member committee is recommending the solider be moved to either the Owensboro Museum of Science and History or the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art.
The large base of the monument will likely be moved to the site of the Battle of Panther Creek on Highway 431.
The recommendations passed unanimously, after a short discussion about the statue ending up in storage. Several members of the committee are concerned it will end up in storage and never be displayed.
A motion passed, to add a line expressing that concern to the letter to the County Commissioners.
The Daviess County Fiscal Court will take up the relocation at their next meeting on December 3rd. The commissioners will have to make a final decision on the relocation and vote it through.
The head of the relocation committee also indicated during Wednesday's meeting, that a private donor has stepped up to cover the cost of the relocation.
All of the committee meetings were streamed on the Daviess County Fiscal Court Facebook page for the public.
Below is the final meeting:
