FORT MYERS, Fla — The Robert E. Lee Bust will not go back up on its pedestal in Downtown Fort Myers.

On Monday, the city council voted 5-2 in favor of keeping the statue down.

They're deciding to work with the museum for a proposal to keep it there instead.

That proposal will then be presented to the city council and voted on once again at a later date.

The bust was initially taken down back in June.
