The office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has charged a Moniteau School Board member with multiple counts of tax evasion not related to the district.
Randy Armagost, 53, of Boyers has been charged with 62 misdemeanor counts accounting for $41,044.81 in unpaid taxes from his business, the Annandale Country Station in Hilliards, according to the criminal complaint.
In an interview Tuesday, Armagost said he has continued to cooperate with investigators and the attorney general's office. He said he hopes to resolve the issue before the July 9 preliminary hearing before Judge Lewis Stoughton.
“That's why we should be able to get this settled,” Armagost said. “Back taxes is all it is. I'm trying to make a deal with them to get paid.”
Armagost is currently serving on the Moniteau School Board, and he is seeking re-election to his seat, having passed through the May 21 primary election.
