DUNDEE—Village elections will be on March 16 from noon until 9 p.m. in the village hall. Paper ballots will be used. Two two-year trustee positions now held by Judy Duquette and Larry Howell will be on the ballot. The Dundee village board approved the hours during their January 10 meeting.

• The board got good news about the recent audit performed by Wheat and Fitzpatrick. Kelly Fitzpatrick outlined the village audit as well as separate audits for the Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP) for the fire department that covered more than two years. After outlining information in the documents, Fitzpatrick praised village clerk Christine Sutherland for her work in preparing for the audit. Referring to LOSAP, Fitzpatrick said, “I think having LOSAP is unusual. I think you took a great step. The chief did an excellent job with the records. The condition of the records improved dramatically as the years progressed.”
