After last week’s removal of the P.G.T. Beauregard monument from its pedestal in front of the New Orleans Museum of Art, the City Park Improvement Board is meeting soon with city officials about the space, and
board members spent about 40 minutes during their regular board meeting Tuesday in a closed-door discussion of “the board’s legal position on the monument” with City Park attorneys, board chair Steve Pettus said.
“We had to bring our board up to date about what’s been going on, and we’ll have discussions with the city in the next few days before bringing it back to our board,” said Bob Becker, City Park CEO.
