Due to the retirement of Dr. Marek Skoskiewicz as coroner for HenryCounty, the commissioners have appointed Dr. Melinda Fritz to that position. Dr. Fritz will serve as acting Henry County Coroner until the time the Republic Central Committee appoints an officer that qualifies for the position, and takes it over. That Central Committee is scheduled to meet on September 9th to review possible candidates. Dr. Skoskiewicz had served as county coroner since 2000; and before that it was Dr. Blough.
The Henry County Commissioners have also accepted the resignation of Edwin Nagel from the county planning commission, effective August 31st.
