Are efforts being planned to restore the Civil War monument in Woodland Cemetery that was damaged during last year's windstorm?

Restoration of the monument is moving forward.

In an article about how cemeteries are recovering from the July 13, 2015, storm, Herald-Whig Staff Writer Edward Husar wrote that repairs were underway.

I really hope so. Have they given any kind of estimate on the cost. We are dealing with that now "The Cost"
I too am very concerned about this cost. Im reminded of an old Southern line: sayin dont make it so. As a contributor, I would be very stringent about credentials and past performance, for those performing the work. IMHO, all are "guessperts" until proven otherwise.
