Citizens critical of Marshfield School Board over Administrator's pay mistake

MARSHFIELD (WSAU) - Marshfield’s school board meeting ended with a great deal of criticism after the district’s recent discovery of overpaying Superintendent Peg Geegan due to an accounting error. Questions still remain, and the board promised steps would be taken to prevent such things in the future.

The board failed to address the matter as an agenda item, but comments from residents like Marshfield businessman John Nikolai made it clear that it’s not being forgotten. According to Nikolai, “School district business director has provided conflicting information to numerous inquiries regarding district expenditures, and has told this taxpayer that the business director is not required to detail expenditures.”

When asked if he had a response to the public comments, school district business director Pat Saucerman declined comment.

Board president Tim Deets said that a plan for repayment of the superintendent’s overpayment should be worked out within the next 30 days.

By unanimous vote the board renewed the superintendent’s contract for another year, with “no substantial changes” according to Deets.
