After a three-hour workshop that aired many different perspectives, the Putnam County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday evening decided to begin the process of relocating the large Confederate statue that stands outside the County Courthouse in Palatka.
“After thinking about it for a month, are we gonna make everybody happy? No, we're not,” said Commission Chair Terry Turner. “We're not gonna make them happy if we leave it. We're not going to make them happy if we move it. We're not gonna make them happy if we put it on the ballot.”
