Deb Schroeder pleaded guilty earlier to charges of felony theft and official misconduct.
The 50-year-old was in court yesterday in Boone County, where the sentencing date was set and her attorney told authorities that she has obtained a loan to repay at least some of the money.
Schroeder has admitted taking the $45,000 by writing checks to herself from the village's general fund and creating fake invoices.
