Commissioners move forward on regional medical examiner’s office

In last Monday’s meeting, the Robertson County Commissioners’ Court joined five other counties in our seven county region to finance a study of the feasibility of establishing a medical examiner’s office in our seven county region. The seventh county will most likely come on board in the near future. The study will determine if the benefits outweigh the disadvantages of such a facility. Currently, area counties must have court ordered autopsies done is Austin, Montgomery County, or Dallas, depending on the judge’s order, which results in delays, transportation costs, and those facilities setting the charge.

The regularly called meeting for this past Tuesday, scheduled to begin at 5:30 failed to do so when a no quorum was called due to the absence of Mayor Ruben Gomez and Councilperson Michael Werlinger. Officially Lashaunda White appeared but do to a medical situation that arose just minutes before the meetings scheduled start was escorted out of the building. This left only Councilpersons Joyce Rattler and Hazel Embra present along with every media outlet in the area present to do nothing more than stare at each other.
