EL PASO - If you own a house in El Paso County, you're gonna pay about $20 more in property taxes.

That was was the decision made today by El Paso County Commissioners.

In a split vote, the commissioner's decided to raise property taxes by $20 a home instead of $41.

A victim of today's budget cuts were two associate courts including the elimination of one associate judge.

A move that will save the county nearly $800,000.  The budget will be finalized October 4.
