Village Council has changed the Village's "newspaper of record" from the Dexter Leader to the Sun Times. The Village is required to publish certain notices, such as those for public hearings, in a paper in general circulation in the Village. A synopsis of the minutes of the Council meetings is also published once the minutes are approved. The Sun Times is delivered free to all homes in the Village, which we hope will increase the amount of people that see the notices that are published. Public hearing notices and Village Council meeting minutes are also available on this website and will be distributed through the e-mail update and Facebook.
