There is no official word from Camden County officials about the removal at this time.
Meanwhile, the mayor of Trenton has announced the city will remove a statue of Christopher Columbus in his city. It’s been covered by a tarp in Columbus Park since mid-June after it was vandalized. The mayor says the statue will be placed in storage and the park will also be renamed.
