County officials remain undecided about cellphone policy

(Continued)

STILLWATER, Okla. —

Lastly, the biggest issue delaying the policy acceptance is the cellphone's contract situations. Most cellphone contracts require a two-year contract agreement and it may be hard to start the policy right when it's accepted.

Stadler said it would be best if the county tabled this policy until more questions were answered, particularly from the sheriff's department.

"This appears to me it's something we can't even decide today," Stadler said. "Until you (Hauf) look into other factors involved with your particular situation."

The Payne County Budget Board tabled the policy with all yes votes except one. Board chairman Commissioners Chris Reding voted no to tabling the acceptance of a new cellphone policy.

"And I vote no," Reding said. "Because I want to get it done."
