A resolution in support of placing the national motto, “In God We Trust,” prominently on the Roane County Courthouse and in the County Commission’s meeting room is on the commission’s Monday agenda.

“I’m proposing pretty much what Anderson County done,” said Commissioner Randy Ellis, who represents the Harriman, Swan Pond and Midtown areas of Roane County.

While Anderson County’s move to put the motto over all courthouse public entrance doors spurred hours of debate over several meetings, Ellis said he expects the Roane County resolution to swiftly pass without much discussion.
