SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Sheboygan County may replace its coroner position with a medical examiner next year.
County Administrator Adam Payne said county officials have been discussing this for some time, but the most recent request comes from current Coroner Dave Leffin. He is retiring from the position after 28 years, and he feels the change to a medical examiner would ensure the best person for the position is found.
Payne said the only change it would have on the public is that the position would no longer be elected every four years, but rather appointed by the county government. Residents should expect the same quality of work from a medical exaiminer within current budget limits.
An ordinance to make the change will be introduced to the county board at their meeting next week.
