TELL CITY – Silence …
Nine seconds of it, to be exact, ticked by after County Council President Pete Franzman called for a second to Councilman Ron Crawford’s motion to stop paying for part-time county officials’ insurance.
The motion, Crawford’s second attempt to address what he said is a concern among county residents, died as a result of that silence. Under rules many deliberative bodies use, a motion must be seconded before it can be put to a vote.
