Officials in Texas on Wednesday reportedly voted in favor of removing a Confederate monument that stands in a cemetery.
The vote – which passed a resolution by 11 to 4 – concerned a monument in Dallas’ Pioneer Park that depicts Confederate soldiers, according to Fox 4 News.
The measure would reportedly proclaim the statue to be “a noncontributing structure for the historic overlay district.”
This gives the city manager the go-ahead to seek the landmark commission's permission to tear down the structure, according to Fox 4.
Up to $480,000 was reportedly allotted in the passed measure for the removal process.
