County’s responsibility with county burials on indigent families:  Commissioner Johnson told DA Hermanson the BOCC needed assistance and his legal advice.  Hermanson said the county sets the policy and the county has set up a budget to assist but the county is not obligated to help with burial when the person owned a home because that would not be considered  indigent.  Several questions were asked regarding who would file a lien, filing claims and probate; Hermanson answered with several different scenarios as to how that could be handled.  Johnson asked if the funeral home didn’t pick up the body whose responsibility would it fall upon.  Hermanson said it would be in the best interest of the county if the body was picked up; he said he would contact the funeral homes in Kay County and try and get some of these questions answered.  Johnson also asked Hermanson how the BOCC are to know if applications are being filled out correctly and if persons are truly indigent; Johnson noted the BOCC just wants to be good stewards with county monies.
