The Marion School Board has hired an interim superintendent to replace Mort Meier who announced his retirement last week.
The board voted unanimously earlier this week to hire former superintentent Greg Mikulich for the next two months, TV 9&10 reported, while conducting a search for a permanent superintendent. Mikulich was with the district 2010-13.

Meier had been with the district five years. The board and Meier have been working through allegations by the Office of Retirement Services that said both he and secretary Diana Salisbury owe $145,000 in pension money. They have appealed the charges. The ORS maintains Meier was accepting a regular paycheck and pension at the same time.

Meier called the charges “baseless” but did not elaborate when making comments on the matter earlier this spring. Board president Monica Cox called it a matter between Salisbury and Meier and the ORS and said it didn’t involve the school board.
Meier had also been serving as an elementary principal.

Board trustee Linda Raymond said Salisbury is still employed with the district.

“(Meier) was principal/superintendent, and we have to decide if we’ll have two positions available or go with the combination again,” Raymond said.

TV 9&10 reported the board is posting internally for an elementary principal while searching for a superintendent.
