Coroner

Duties of the County Coroner include:

1. IDENTIFICATION of the deceased;
2. Determination of the CAUSE of death; and
3. Determination of the MANNER of death.

IDENTIFICATION may be as easy as having a family member at the scene when you get there or as difficult as having only a few bones to work with and having to utilize one of the many experts available to your coroner.

CAUSE of death is the final factor or event that happened to the deceased. If this had not happened, the individual would still be alive. This may be a cascade of factors or events, one following the other and this will be reflected on the death certificate that your coroner files with the county health department

As an example:

A. asphyxia (inability to breathe), due to
B. chest compression, due to
C. settling of automobile, due to
D. failure of jacking apparatus.

This group of factors is referred to as the mechanism, which lead to the asphyxia, which is the cause of death.

MANNER of death is a descriptive grouping. It is, however, a firmly set, universally accepted acknowledgement of how people die. These possibilities are:

A. homicide;
B. suicide;
C. accident;
D. natural; and
E. undetermined.

Prosecuting Attorney

Recorder

The County Recorder was the first office created by the Constitution of the State of Indiana in 1816.

 

The County Recorder's function is to maintain permanent public records involving a wide variety of instruments. Examples of recorded documents include deeds, mortgages, contracts, affidavits, mechanics liens, military discharges, subdivision plats, surveys, leases, public and private bonds, powers of attorney, Federal tax liens, and assorted miscellaneous documents.  Generally, all of these instruments are recorded either for giving legal public notice of their existence or for safekeeping and future reference.  The Recorder must enforce more than 1000 sections of State Law in the Indiana Revised Code.
 
Hours: 8:00 am to 4:30 pm
Recording Hours:    8:00 am to 4:00 pm
Holiday Schedule:    County Holiday Schedule
 
By State Statute, the County Recorder maintains and preserves all legal documents affecting title to real property.  Any instrument submitted for recording, providing it meets essential requirements, are recorded.  These records are the legal basis for determining ownership of real property.

 

The County Recorder prepares and furnishes official copies of any record or instrument when required by law, ordered by the court, or requested by any parties.  All documents are public information with the exception of Military Discharge records.  Since the Recorder's office is a State constitutional office, fees charged by the recorder are established under Indiana Code 36-2-7.  All transactions are audited by the Indiana State Board of Accounts.

 

The Recorder is a member of the County Commission on Public Records, which has authority over the preservation or disposition of all public records maintained by the County. (Indiana Code 5-15-6)

Treasurer

Welcome to the Whitley County Treasurer's Department.
 
The County Treasurer is responsible for collecting, retaining custody of and disbursing county funds.

The Treasurer's Office performs the billing and collection of property taxes and special assessments on real estate, personal property tax, and mobile homes located in Whitley County.

The Treasurer also pursues the collection of delinquent taxes.

Whitley County's bank accounts and investments are maintained by the Treasurer.  All funds collected are invested until disbursements are made to the various taxing units in the county (schools, cities, towns, townships and libraries) and to the County's Operational Funds.

Each month, the Treasurer and Auditor work together closely to balance all funds.

Property tax statements, mobile home title transfer permits and mobile home moving permits are issued through the County Treasurer's Office.  A property tax clearance form for an alcohol beverage license can also be obtained at the Treasurer's office.

The County Treasurer is required to track all bankruptcies filed for Whitley County property owners.

When government employees fail to pay their property taxes, the Treasurer is required to notify the taxing unit and can garnish wages if necessary. 

It is our desire to serve each Whitley County resident efficiently and respectfully.

Emergency Management Agency

Whitley County Emergency Management/Department of Homeland Security is the discipline of dealing with and avoiding risks. It is a discipline that involves preparing for disaster before it occurs, disaster response (e.g. emergency evacuation, quarantine, mass decontamination, etc.), as well as supporting, and rebuilding society after natural or human-made disasters have occurred.
 
In general, Emergency Management is the continuous process by which all individuals, groups, and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoid the impact of disasters resulting from the hazards. Actions taken depend in part on perceptions of risk of those exposed. Effective emergency management relies on thorough integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government involvement. Activities at each level (individual, group, community) affect the other levels.

Emergency Management is one of a number of terms which, since the end of the Cold War, have largely replaced Civil Defense, whose original focus was protecting civilians from military attack. Modern thinking focuses on a more general intent to protect the civilian population in times of peace as well as in times of war.
