Osage, Iowa – A vacant role on the Osage School Board has been temporarily filled since the former vice president was accused of misappropriating money while working at the Mitchell County Treasurer’s Office.
46 year old Tracey Mooberry pleaded not guilty to the second-degree theft charge and has resigned from her role as vice president of the Osage School Board.
Angela Naastrom, who has served on the board before, has been elected to the seat. She will be on the board for only a month due to a bond issue that needs to be voted on. A special election will be held Sept. 13 to officially fill Mooberry’s past position.
Those running for School Board need to be filed by Aug. 19. Once elected, they’ll be on the board until September 2017.
The bond issue for the school is set to be voted on Sept. 13. Public meetings at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 31 and Sept. 7 at the high school cafeteria will be held to inform residents about the issue.
