Draft recommendation calls for removal of Caddo Confederate monument

CADDO Parish (KTAL) - A draft recommendation from a citizen advisory committee calls for the 115 year-old Confederate monument in front of the Caddo Parish Courthouse to be moved. 

The draft recommendation also calls on the Caddo Parish Commission to minimize the use of public funds in moving the monument, and set up a public-private partnership to raise money from the public to help remove and relocate the monument.

The citizen's committee held four public meetings throughout the parish to hear from residents about the monument. 

The committee is having a meeting on Thursday at 6 p.m. to have a final vote on the draft recommendation. 

The meeting is being held at Southern Hills Business Association, 0701 Baird Road in Shreveport.
