Financial Fight


Money problems are now turning into legal problems for El Paso County.

The county's coroner is suing commissioners for not giving him enough funding to do an adequate job.

He says he's receiving 50 thousand dollars less than last year and wants more money to hire 2 pathologists.

The council and the coroner have squabbled in the past over the cost of performing autopsies. Commissioners even ordered an audit of the coroner's finances earlier this month.
