FORT MADISON, Iowa (AP) - A former drainage district board member has been convicted of falsifying documents regarding his employees taking dirt without permission to repair a levee in southeast Iowa.

The Daily Gate City reports (https://bit.ly/2e2o5pR ) that Michael Pieper (PEE’-pur), of Wever, is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 6. He was convicted last week.

North Lee County District Court documents say Pieper ordered his company employees in 2011 to take the dirt. The dirt value was estimated at around $93,000.

The documents also say Pieper falsified minutes in June 2012 of a previous Green Bay Levee and Drainage District board meeting to show his company had gotten permission from the board to remove the dirt for the repairs.
