City to resurrect Ten Commandments

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Chiefland officials aren’t saying much about the Ten Commandments monument that left City Hall more than a year ago, where it went or when it’s expected to come back, but they’re making plans for its return.

Commissioners, agreeing that a 2008 resolution accepting the donated monument from area businessman Joe Anderson didn’t set proper guidelines for the display of such a monument at City Hall, gave City Attorney Norm Fugate the go-ahead Monday night to part the seas of potential litigation through the drafting of a new-and-improved ordinance for reinstallation of the 6-ton granite stone.

The monument was trucked away shortly after the city and county were both hit with public records request in 2011 from the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that had successfully sued Dixie County in federal court in Gainesville for placing a monument next to the front door of that county’s courthouse.
