While it may be more than a year before the broken panel on the Montague County Veterans’ Memorial is repaired, the commissioner’s court approved a quote to replace it during Monday’s court session.
It was Nov. 10, 2021, just one day before Veteran’s Day, when one of the panels fell and was broken on the memorial standing on the courthouse square. Officials said they believe it fell during high winds the night before.
The quote for the new panel is $14,908 from Riley Gardner Memorial. The county received $14,200 from insurance. County Treasurer Jennifer Fenoglio told the court the insurance company staff said they would pay the difference after the deductible, which has already been paid.
