The Marinette County Personnel and Veterans Service committee approved a resolution to switch from a Coroner to a Medical Examiner at the end of the Coroner’s term on the first Monday in January.  County administrator John Lefebre says he doesn’t see any disadvantages going from the elected coroner to an appointed medical examiner, and there are advantages to the county giving it more control over the position.

Lefebre says the only concerns he’s heard is if the county were to contract the position out.

The County Law Enforcement Committee is scheduled to make their recommendation on the issue Monday, with the County Board voting on the proposal at their March meeting.
