Former conservation chief still paid months after departure

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Payroll records show that Missouri’s former conservation chief is still getting paychecks even though he left the job more than seven months ago.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/2mc2Sus ) reports that records show that Robert Ziehmer already has received more than $87,000 from the state for doing no work. He gets an additional $5,800 every two weeks as payouts that the newspaper says were not disclosed when he departed last July after nearly three decades at the department.

Ziehmer was paid $140,000 a year to oversee a staff of 1,450 full-time and 500 hourly employees.

The newspaper says documents show that the payouts to Ziehmer are the result of a separation-and-release agreement between Ziehmer and the Missouri Conservation Commission, which oversees the Missouri Department of Conservation.
