Fate of Botetourt County Monument Discussed

Discussions over the fate of the Botetourt County Confederate monument, at the courthouse, are set to begin. The monuments and statue board chairman, Stephen Clinton, said the committee will take time to learn the history behind the statue. The group will also examine how the statue will impact the community in the future. Clinton said his committee will present its recommendation to the Board of Supervisors near the end of the year. The board will then have the final vote. All committee meetings will be open to the public.
