Members of the Daviess County Fiscal Court will soon meet to discuss the fate of the Confederate statue that stands on the courthouse lawn in downtown Owensboro, Kentucky.
The discussion was tabled weeks ago during a previous Daviess County Fiscal Court meeting.
"The resolution to move the statue off of the courthouse lawn was delayed until our August 6 meeting, and that will be brought before Fiscal Court to look at," said Daviess County Judge Al Mattingly.
Many support the removal of the statue from the courthouse lawn, such as the NAACP of Owensboro, which has pushed for the statue's move to the Owensboro History and Science Museum.
"We have over 1,600 signatures endorsing the statue be removed," said Pastor Rhondalyn Randolph, President of the NAACP Owensboro Branch.
A rally was held on Saturday, where many who want the statue to remain as-is were in attendance.
The Daviess County Fiscal Court meeting where the fate of the statue will be discussed will be held at the Daviess County Courthouse on Aug 6 at 5:00 p.m.
