A request has been made to the City of Launceston council to remove part of the It's All About Us sculpture in the Brisbane Street Mall.
The concern is about John Millwood's name being on the sculpture because he is a registered paedophile.
The council previously considered the motion when Launceston business owner Robin Smith asked the council to remove the work during public question time at the February 7 meeting.
It is recommended that the council approves the removal of the plaque and replace it with an alternative.
It is also recommended the wording of the plaque is determined by the general manager in consultation with the council's Tasmanian Aboriginal Advisory Group.
Mr Millwood had been working to get a sculpture in the mall since 2004. After one sculpture was turned down, he approached the council in 2005 with an idea for a work that had the theme of reconciliation.
He continued working to get the sculpture installed until 2007.
The sculpture, installed by the council, cost more than $23,000.
In 2017, the council made the decision to withdraw the 2009 Heritage Award given to Mr Millwood to serve as a clear indication that the council does not tolerate crimes perpetrated against children in the community.
The sculpture features a small plaque that references Mr Millwood's effort and a request has been made to remove it.
The council will discuss the request at its meeting on Thursday.
"Clearly, the current plaque is a cause for some considerable distress for members of the community and therefore, it is not reflective of our community vision, particularly in respect to being an inclusive region," the council's agenda said.
"Accordingly, it is recommended that the plaque be replaced by a suitably worded alternative, which captures the essence and intent of the sculpture."
Informal consultation has already occurred between the Tasmanian Aboriginal Advisory Group and the council.
"There is support to have the plaque removed and replaced by one with more appropriate wording," the agenda said.
The removal of the plaque would not infringe the moral rights of the artist because is it not part of the sculpture.
A replacement plaque would cost about $1500.
Mr Millwood was convicted in 2016.
The meeting will start at 1pm in the Town Hall.
