Roane County is considering putting the phrase "In God We Trust" at two county buildings.

County commissioner Randy Ellis came up with the idea. He says the proposal would hang one sign above the main entrance at the county courthouse, and another in the commission chamber. The signs would also have to be privately funded.

Anderson County approved a similar proposal last year.

So far Ellis says he's only received support from the community.

The Roane County Commission is set to discuss the proposal next Monday at 7.
