St. Louis Leaders Consider Removing Confederate Symbols From All City Parks

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS)  A St. Louis  aldermanic committee is considering a measure to remove all Confederate symbols from city parks.

The issue will be addressed during a public meeting at St. Louis City Hall tonight. This comes after crews placed barriers around the Confederate Monument in Forest Park on Wednesday morning. The mayor’s office says this is the first step in taking the statue down and and it could take weeks to complete. City officials say the removal process could have a price tag of up to 130-thousand-dollars.

The over century old monument in Forest Park has generated controversy in the St. Louis area, especially in recent month. The Confederate Monument has repeatedly been targeted by vandals and the subject of demonstrations.

Tonight’s meeting will be held in the Kennedy Room 208 at St. Louis City Hall from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
