EUNICE, NEW MEXICO - The City of Eunice will foot the bill for Fire Chief Ron Grogan's appeal process.

As NewsWest Nine first told you, the New Mexico State Health Department suspended Grogan on grounds of sexual misconduct.

They'd received a complaint that he felt a woman's breast during a May 23rd E-M-S call.

The City Manager says it was his decision to have the City Attorney represent Grogan during an upcoming appeal hearing, which means taxpayers will pay for it.
