Callahan, who is not running for re-election this fall, said she has received threats over the incident as well as calls from residents who are concerned about a previously-announced demonstration at the site by the Greater Dayton Chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice.
The organization has scheduled a demonstration for Saturday where the 90-year-old memorial previously stood.
As of 2 p.m. Thursday afternoon, Westendorf said no one has applied for an assembly permit for a demonstration there. He said if no permit is issued, any demonstration would be an illegal assembly.
According to the Facebook page promoting Saturday’s event called “Stand Against White Supremacy in Solidarity with Charlottesville,” 42 people said they were going with 233 people who said they were interested.
This news outlet reached out to the organization for comment but has not yet received a response.
