Ordinance regarding use of hand-held mobile telephones and mobile electronic devices while driving.

There were discussions regarding a possibility the Village would adopt an Ordinance restricting the use of hand-held mobile telephones and electronic devices while driving. It was unanimously felt the Village would wait until the State and the Local Municipalities all approved the restriction. Police Chief Jeremy Hunt said it would be too difficult to enforce such an Ordinance if everyone is not enforcing the restriction. He felt it would be confusing to the drivers as to boundary lines from one municipality to another and especially for the drivers that are not from the area.

Motioned by Paulson/Owen to table a recommendation adopting an Ordinance regarding use of hand-held mobile telephones and mobile electronic devices while driving until there is more information from the State and Local Municipalities. Questioned and carried 3:0.

Motion to adjourn was made by Mutch Owen and seconded by Arlene Paulson. Motion carried by voice vote. Meeting adjourned 2:07 PM.
