The initial investigation began after the Boyceville EMS Board was notified of the disparities in early November, said village President Gilbert Krueger.

That investigation cleared two other employees but led to the decision to place Matt and Tessa Feeney, who have worked at the service since 2010, on leave.

Krueger could not say how much money was involved and that more information would be available after a board meeting on Dec. 11.
