ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - A former St. Joseph superintendent may be forced to repay several hundred thousand dollars in overpaid pension benefits.

The St. Joseph News-Press (https://bit.ly/1iZcq9C ) reports that Dan Colgan’s income was reported as more than $586,000 during his last three years as superintendent. Colgan left in 2005. However, the total salary and insurance benefit as specified in his contract was $343,287. One issue was that an annuity and car allowances were incorrectly included in the income calculation.

The Missouri Public School & Education Employee Retirement Services of Missouri sent a letter to district officials last month. School board member Eric Bruder says the board continued to monitor the situation. Colgan doesn’t have a listed phone number.

The district has been making changes after receiving a highly critical state audit in February.
