   The Missouri Ethics Commission says a former Rockwood School Board member has violated the state's conflict-of-interest law.  

   The commission found that over a two year period Steve Smith voted more than a dozen times on construction orders that allowed his employer, Glenn Construction to raise its fees on contracts with the school board.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Smith has been hit with a $10,000 fine, but if he pays within 45 days, the amount drops to $2,000.  If he violates the conflict-of-interest law again in the next two years, Smith would be on the hook for the other $8,000.  

   Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich had come to the same conclusion in his February audit of the Rockwood School District. 

   Smith served on the Rockwood Board of Education as a Glenn Construction employee between May 2010 and June 2012.

A Rockwood School board member has resigned after being targeted in a Missouri audit.

Steve Smith sent a letter last night announcing his resignation days after an audit was critical of district overspending on construction projects.

The audit claims Glenn Construction Co. was overpaid by more than $1.2 million over the last 10 years. That's the same company where Smith works. State Auditor Tom Schweich concluded that Smith failed to abstain from votes giving projects to Glenn Construction while he worked for the firm.

Smith says he is stepping aside so the focus can be on the children of the district.
