9/11 memorial one step closer to demolition


NOW.. THE 9-11 MEMORIAL IN DOWNTOWN GREEN BAY — ONE STEP CLOSER TO COMING DOWN. TONIGHT… THE CITY’S PARK COMMITTEE APPROVED TEARING DOWN THE MEMORIAL. NOW… CITY COUNCIL MAKES THE FINAL CALL. NBC 26’S SHANE GUSTAFSON IS LIVE IN STUDIO. SHANE… THE PLAN IS TO TAKE IT DOWN SOON. JON AND CASSANDRA — CITY LEADERS CALLED THE MEMORIAL DOWNTOWN — AN EMBARASSMENT. IT HAS WRONG INFORMATION — AND SEVERAL OF THE VICTIM’S NAMES HAVE WORN OFF THE WALL. NOW THEY’RE SAYING — THEY CAN’T WAIT FOR IT TO COME DOWN. HOLES — CRACKS — AND FADED NAMES FILL THE 9-11 MEMORIAL IN DOWNTOWN GREEN BAY. ALDERMAN RANDY SCANNELL — HAS LEAD THE PUSH TO TEAR DOWN THE MONUMENT. IT ARRIVED OVER A DECADE AGO AS A GIFT FROM A NOW DISBANDED ORGANIZATION — AND WAS REJECTED BY THE CITY OF MADISON. WEDNESDAY NIGHT — MEMBERS OF THE PARK COMMITTEE APPROVED A RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL — CALLING FOR IT’S REMOVAL. BUT AN ORIGINAL BEAM FROM THE TWIN TOWERS — CURRENTLY SITTING ON THE MONUMENT — WILL STAY. SCANNELL SAYS — IT WILL PLAY A BIG ROLE IN THE CITY’S PROPOSED NEW PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING. SCANNELL SAYS — THE OVERALL HOPE — IS REMEMBERING THE VICTIMS. CITY COUNCIL DOES HAVE TO APPROVE THE PROJECT BEFORE IT CAN BEGIN HAVE TO APPROVE THE PROJECT BEFORE IT CAN BEGIN . THAT SHOULD HAPPEN NEXT TUESDAY — SCANNELL SAYS HE EXPECTS THE VOTE TO PASS. THE BEAM WOULD BE MOVED DURING A SERVICE ON SEPTEMBER 11TH THIS YEAR. KEEPING YOU CONNECTED — SHANE GUSTAFSON — NBC 26. STILL AHEAD.. HELP BUYING SCHOOL
