Confederate monument committee meeting moved to commissioners courtroom

The Confederate monument advisory committee will decide on a recommendation for the downtown statue at 9 a.m. Thursday in the commissioners courtroom instead of their usual meeting room on the third floor of the Courthouse on the Square. 

The meeting is expected to last for hours as the 15 committee members debate the fate of the statue, which sits on the south side of the Courthouse on the Square lawn. They normally meet at 9 a.m. every Thursday in the 1896 Room on the third floor of the courthouse, but Denton County Office of History and Culture Director Peggy Riddle said Wednesday that the meeting will be held in the second-floor commissioners courtroom. 

The meeting will be open to the public for observation purposes only. Members will not take public comments during the discussion.
