The Gainesville Sun reports that one of the obelisks in the Plaza de la Constitution is on city-owned property, and the other is on a nearby spot that's state-owned and managed by the University of Florida.
The city commission voted Oct. 23 to keep the monuments and establish a commission to add a plaque with historical context.
The University of Florida says it is waiting to see what the city comes up with before making a decision.
Rev. Ron Rawls of St. Paul AME Church in St. Augustine says the decision to keep the monuments is unacceptable and is organizing a protest on Nov. 18 at the site.
