New automated county phones

       El Paso County Commissioners have implemented a new phone number for county government - 520-PASO (7276). Calling this number prompts a lengthy automated response - part of which explains that it is not the number for the county courthouse. According to a county secretary, numerous calls to county offices used to be from people wanting to reach the courthouse.
       Pressing 0 bypasses the automated response and connects callers with a receptionist who can connect them to the county's elected officials or departments.
