UPDATE: City council moves vote on Confederate statue final disposition process to next week


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — This evening Richmond residents will have the chance to share their thoughts on where the city’s confederate monuments should be sent and sold to.

A Richmond city council committee will be meeting virtually to discuss the formal process for deciding which offer to accept and reviewing an evaluation score sheet.

Public comment was welcomed and received by the city clerk’s office, and residents will be able to weigh in at future meetings.

The meeting on Monday will be live streamed starting at 5 p.m.

UPDATE 6:00 p.m.

Richmond City Council voted at the Organizational Development Committee to move RES 2021-R025 — which would set up the process for determining where the removed Confederate statues will end up — to next week. City council now plans to vote on the resolution on May 10 instead.
