Lawsuit against Killeen hinges on mysterious audit comments that popped up with court documents

Two lawsuits were filed against the city of Killeen within the last couple weeks.
Killeen's ousted finance director, Barbara Gonzales, and fleet services technician John Acker stand outside Killeen City Hall in December after appealing the Dec. 12 termination of their employment. Both filed lawsuits against the city this month.
