Mecklenburg County commissioners will discuss the future of a Confederate memorial that sits less than half a mile outside uptown Charlotte.
County officials are gearing up for a lively discussion on this considering the debate nationwide about stripping Southern cities of Confederate symbols.
There's a memorial commemorating a Confederate veterans reunion from 1929 sitting behind a chain-link fence near Memorial Stadium outside of uptown. That memorial sits on county property.
Channel 9 received viewer emails calling for it to be removed following the deadly shooting at a Charleston church.
The FBI has been investigating the massacre as a hate crime.

Authorities in Rock Hill raided the Indeego Spa on North Cherry Road after there were complaints of prostitution at the massage parlor.
Sexual services were offered in exchange for monetary payment, police said. They seized several items and about $302.
They charged Peilian Mace with solicitation to commit prostitution.
The business is located in the same strip mall as a church. The parlor has three massage rooms and Mace lived in the back of the business.
Tuesday a Catawba grand jury indicted 18-year-old David Engelmann, of Hickory, on charges of felony death by vehicle and driving while impaired.
Englemann was driving a Subaru Forester in August when he allegedly ran off the road, overcorrected and flipped the vehicle. Hickory High School classmate Jay Brian Robertson II, 17, was ejected from the vehicle through its open sunroof. He died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
Investigation by Hickory Police Department revealed that Engelmann’s blood alcohol level was .09.
“This is a very tragic case for all involved,” District Attorney David Learner said.
In May a grand jury declined to indict Englemann on a felony death by vehicle charge.
