BOONE COUNTY COMMISSION TO CONSIDER LEGAL
OPINION AND PLACEMENT OF DESERT STORM MEMORIAL

July 29, 2015—On Thursday, August 6, 2015, the Boone County Commission will hear the first reading of an agenda item regarding the future placement of the Desert Storm Memorial and the legal opinion supporting that placement. The Commission meeting will be held at 2:30PM in the Roger B. Wilson Boone County Government Center Commission Chambers.

The two-part agenda item first asks that the Commission receive and accept the legal opinion of Daniel Simon in regard to the Desert Storm Memorial. The second portion of the agenda item suggests the Commission consider a Commission Order that would relocate the Memorial, with the ichthus exposed, to the Columbia Cemetery Association property.
