ASHEVILLE, N.C.– A shroud that had actually been covering a Confederate monument in downtown Asheville won’t be changed after wind tore it off.
The city of Asheville revealed online the shroud on the Vance monolith will not be replaced but scaffolding that had actually been holding it up will remain until a taskforce makes a decision on the monolith’s future, TV station WLOS reported Sunday.
The city paid $18,500 to set up the shroud. The city has likewise been paying a $2,600 month-to-month scaffolding rental fee.
The first conference of the job force was held Thursday. The 12-member group is anticipated to present recommendations in three months.
The monument honors Zebulon Vance, a Buncombe County native and North Carolina governor during the Civil War along with a U.S. senator.Source: spectrumlocalnews.com
