Coroner Wilkey Busts Budget

Item: Coroner busts budget: Wilkey: High number of autopsies is to blame/Alecia Warren, CdA Press

More Info: Due to a high number of autopsies, the Kootenai County commissioners have injected an extra $50,000 into the coroner's budget to make it to the end of the fiscal year next month. "She told us what she had for current payables and what was projected through September," said Commissioner Jai Nelson. The budget for autopsies will also increase next fiscal year, from this year's $135,000 to $150,000. The commissioners want to take a closer look at the coroner's expenditures, Nelson added.

Question: Do you blame autopsies or inexperience for the budget busting in the coroner's office?
