Cadiz City Council members voted unanimously last Tuesday to donate $3,000 to the monument. Cadiz City Council member Todd King made the motion and fellow Council member Susan Bryant seconded.
Cadiz Renaissance on Main Committee member Paul Fourhsee, who also serves on the African American Memorial Committee, said that between that and a donation from some of the family of John Egerton, they have the majority of the $10,000 they need for the project.
“We have an idea for the memorial and a site picked out, and we are in the process of raising funds,” Fourshee said. “We should be able to see this materialize in the spring, and I’d certainly like to see an unveiling in the early summer.”
