— Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin said he will present a proposal to the city council to change the city's seal, which currently has the historic Market House front and center.

Colvin spoke Tuesday night with WRAL's Mark Boyle and said the seal, which is on things like the city flag and trash cans, would be removed if the city council votes to approve the measure. Colvin said if the measure is approved, the removal process could happen "relatively quickly."

He also said the conversations about the future of the Market House itself are still ongoing.

Tuesday, it was announced a mural with the words "Black Lives Matter" and "End Racism" would be painted around the historic structure — perhaps opening a new chapter in the building's history.
