Commissioners Appoint Johnson County Deputy Coroner

A request by Johnson County Coroner Dave Harness was discussed and acted on by the county commissioners at their meeting Monday.

Harness was seeking permission from the commissioners to appoint Jill Wright as deputy coroner.

Commissioner Linda Greenough said that in addition to granting the request by Harness, she thought it a good idea to appoint Wright as deputy coroner because this is an election year, and if the county gets a new coroner in the election, she would like to have an experienced staff for the new coroner should that happen.

The commissioners voted to appoint Wright as deputy coroner.
