Since 2005, five other Superior city employees have been removed from their positions as a result of theft allegations including the city's former fire chief, Stephen Gotelaere, who was forced into retirement after it was discovered he'd falsified travel documents.
It was later discovered Gotelaere
stole more than $239,000 and he
was sent to prison after being convicted of felony theft.
Two other city employees -- a Superior firefighter and finance department employee -- were also removed from their positions in 2005.
In 2008, a library employee was fired as a result of theft, and last year another finance department employee lost her
job after it was discovered she
was shorting city deposits.
