Background:

On Aug. 19, 2019, Chief Judge Nilon sent a letter to the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners requesting the lion statue currently located on the first floor of the County Administration Building be relocated to the Criminal Courthouse, where it’s match is currently located.

 

At the April 2019 Historical Commission Meeting, they voted unanimously to “move the 2nd Lion Statue to the Civil Courthouse or pair it with the other at the Criminal Courthouse.”

 

Staff is requesting the Board discuss this request and provide direction to staff.
