DeKalb ready to accept proposals to move Confederate monument
10/24/17 - Decatur, GA - Behind the old courthouse in Decatur Square sits this Confederate monument. Supporters of removing a Confederate monument from Decatur along with a lone proponent of keeping it spoke during public comment at the DeKalb County Commission. The commission is expected to vote to explore removing the monument. The vote wouldn't remove the monument immediately; rather, it would start an investigation into potential loopholes in state law allowing the county to take action. BOB ANDRES /BANDRES@AJC.COM
