The proposal aims to prohibit employees from talking on any cell phone, whether personal or county-owned, while in a county vehicle.The proposal goes even further stating that employees in their own cars cannot talk on a county-owned cell phone. They would not be able to conduct county business on any phone in any car. The county council voted to further study the issue for potential action. Chief Administrative Officer Doug Willmore, at the council's request, collected the results of various studies and court cases related to vehicle cell phone usage.
