The chairman of the Osceola County Board of Commissioners indicated the county is on its way to reaching a solution with the present situation regarding the medical examiner’s office.

At the commission meeting on Sept. 19, the commissioners approved terminating the current contract on Dec. 31, 2017, with a remaining lump sum payment for 2017 totaling $8,836.

A motion followed to reject the letters from medical examiner Dr. Paul Wagner and medical examiner officer administrator Lisa Kaspriak to terminate their services as of Nov. 18, 2017.

“I think we worked out some stuff and that stuff that still does need to be worked out will be done in the committee format,” chairman Larry Emig told the Marion Press on Tuesday.

He indicated more information will come up in the two October meetings.

The building, grounds and safety committee has shown various options and diagrams provided by Landmark, the architect.
“We’ll be discussing more of that and discussing some options,” Emig said. “We’ll probably do it in phases. It’s not a cheap fix. We’ll look at some options and try to get some things going. The feeling was they could probably look at the entrance needs at the two buildings. There are some things we can do here in the next few months or the first part of the new year so we can improve the security from what it is today.”
