Former Greenbush Middle River School District official pleads guilty

A former business manager for the Greenbush Middle River School District who admitted to school administrators to falsifying financial records pleaded guilty to two counts of misconduct of a public officer or employee last month according to court documents.

In an audit commissioned by school administrators, Arlys Strandberg, 59, was found to have wrongly paid herself and other employees overtime, according to charges against her. Prior to the audit, she falsified records to hide how much overtime she was being paid.

The Roseau County District Court judge dismissed one of the charges and will dismiss the other if Strandberg completes two years of unsupervised probation, pays her court fees and serves 80 hours of community service.
