Sullivan Co. Commission ‘tables’ resolution aimed at removing weapons signs at courthouse

BLOUNTVILLE — Most Sullivan County commissioners indicated in a resounding vote Monday that they don’t want “no weapons permitted” signs removed from the doors of the historic Sullivan County Courthouse.

The commission voted 22-1 to “table” consideration of a resolution some said seemed aimed at getting those signs removed.

Tabling ends debate of an issue, and differs from “deferring” a vote by removing a resolution from automatically being placed on next month’s agenda.

More on the commission's vote is available at TimesNews.net.
