COLUMN: No fiddling with cell phones during government meetings

-A A +A

REPORTER'S NOTEBOOK

By Mallory Bilger

While covering the Spencer County Fiscal Court Monday, I noticed something disturbing. A couple of magistrates intermittently appeared to be typing on their cell phones during the course of the meeting.

Now in this day of constant information flow via text messages, Facebook and Twitter, and the unwillingness to separate from one’s cell phone at all, this may not seem like a big deal.

But this was taking place during a public meeting — in which all communication involving public business is supposed to be available to the audience.
