An issue that has caused an uproar among citizens since Friday fell softly to the sound of silence during Tuesdayâ€™s Starkville Board of Aldermen meeting.
The board, by a 4-3 vote, defeated Ward 6 Alderman Roy A. Perkinsâ€™ proposed resolution to ban citizens bringing cell phones into Board of Aldermen meetings. Aldermen Ben Carver, David Little, Jason Walker and Scott Maynard â€” of Wards 1,3,4 and 5 respectively â€” opposed the measure, while Ward 2 Alderman Lisa Wynn and Ward 7 Alderman Henry Vaughn voted with Perkins in favor.
