REMOVAL - One of the resolutions before county commissioners at next Chairman Dottie Robinweek’s meeting calls for the removal of the Confederate flag emblem and associated wording from the statue in front of the courthouse.

The budget will not be the only request on the Montgomery County Commissioners agenda next Tuesday evening. The Rev. Demond Hairston, president of the NAACP, appeared before the board in August requesting the board declare racism as a public health crisis in the county. In addition, a resolution will be presented asking for the removal of the Confederate flag inscription for the War Memorial that stands in front of the courthouse.
