The village plans to proceed with a March 18 election for the Board of Trustees, although allegations of Hispanic-voter discrimination that halted a previous election have yet to be resolved.

The board posted notice this month that it would seek to fill five of the six trustee seats - those held by Gregory Adams, Domenick Cicatelli, John Crane, Joseph Kenner and Robert Sorensen. Candidates will compete for two three-year terms, two two-year terms and one one-year term.
