SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The ex-treasurer of Anthon's rescue squad in northwestern Iowa has been ordered to repay more than $83,000 she's accused of misspending.

The Sioux City Journal reported Friday that Kristine Roggatz was ordered by a judge Wednesday to make the payment to cover the nearly $77,000 she's accused of taking from the group and another nearly $6,900 for the cost of an audit that discovered the malfeasance.

The judgment was part of a lawsuit the city brought in 2017 against Roggatz after the town's insurance carrier covered the losses.
