Atwill: look for vote on Boone County Courthouse mural issue in next two weeks

Boone County Presiding Commissioner Dan Atwill expects county commissioners to vote on the Sid Larson courthouse mural issue in the next two weeks.

Commissioners heard more the two hours of testimony on Tuesday night.

Former Boone County Judge Gary Oxenhandler and attorney Rusty Antel say the mural has no place in a courthouse. Antel tells ABC-17 News that the majority of Boone County judges want the mural removed.

But attorney Bill Powell disagrees, telling KMIZ that those who want the mural taken down are misinterpreting its message. Powell says the murals are also a way to learn from the past.
