Anonymous donor could fund Confederate monument removals; Chief Harrison calls Liberty Place statue "shameful"


Removing New Orleans' Confederate landmarks could cost the city $126,000 to remove and relocate ? and an anonymous donor already is committed to pay the cost. According to Deputy Mayor and Chief Administrative Officer Andy Kopplin, after estimating the cost, a donor is lined up to pay for the removal of four controversial monuments ? Jefferson Davis on Jefferson Davis Parkway , P.G.T. Beauregard at City Park, Robert E. Lee at Lee Circle, and the Battle of Liberty Place monument.

Opponents of the statues' removal have argued the cost would fall on taxpayers, and the city would be better off using the money for police and other essential services.?
