Mason City School Board to discuss issues related to special investigation
MASON CITY — The Mason City School Board this evening in a special session will discuss three issues that resulted from the special investigation by the State Auditor’s office that showed over $2.2 million was not properly disbursed during an eight-year period between July 2009 and August 2017. The three items to be discussed are:
== The overpayment by the Clear Lake Community School District back to the Mason City Community School District for services that were shared between the two districts between 2010 and 2016. The two districts have been working on determining how much the Clear Lake district was overbilled for all agreements, including the sharing agreement for Superintendent Anita Micich. Clear Lake was to reimburse Mason City for 40 percent of the total of Micich’s salary and benefits.
== The special investigation indicated several employees were underpaid during the investigation’s time frame. Payment to those employees will be discussed and considered by the board.
== The State Auditor’s Office billed the district for a portion of the cost of the special investigation, with the board to discuss and consider payment.
The board is also scheduled to approve the budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. The board meets at 5:30 in the board room at the administration center.
