Confederate statue debate continues

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - On Monday the Lauderdale County Commission discussed a proposal calling for the removal of a Confederate monument at the front of the Lauderdale Courthouse.

However, Commissioners Fay Parker and Roger Garner said they need to evaluate the legal ramifications and consequences first, such as the cost of removal.

For example, there is a 2017 law in place that says cities are fined $25,000 for removing a monument that’s been in its place for at least 40 years.

He also says he understands the location is part of the concern, since it is at the courthouse.
