The Muncie city council wants its meetings governed by the golden rule.
The council passed a resolution calling for officials and the public to "treat others as they would wish to be treated" during meetings.
Council member Brad Polk sponsored the resolution. He says he got the idea after a meeting in January, when an argument between a member of the public and several officials degenerated into name-calling.
Council member Monte Murphy voted against the measure, calling it "just more paperwork."
