Coroner Dr. Mark Tussey makes a point during last Tuesday’s meeting of the Anderson County Fiscal Court. He told magistrates that an additional $5,000 in his budget to hire a third deputy coroner makes good fiscal sense.
Coroner: County spends more on dead animals than dead people

County government spends nearly as much getting rid of dead animals as it does dead humans, and that has to change.

That was just part of the message Coroner Dr. Mark Tussey and his staff delivered to magistrates during last Tuesday’s meeting of the Anderson County Fiscal Court.

Tussey, along with deputy coroners Steve Votaw and Richard Medley, each took turns explaining why, in their view, magistrates should authorize more money to hire a deputy coroner.
