DUNDEE, Mich. - Dundee Village Manager Patrick Burtch is the focus of an investigation by the Michigan State Police for allegedly misusing village property and personnel, a detective from the agency's Monroe post said yesterday.

Sgt. David Meyer did not release the specific allegations against Mr. Burtch, who has been village manager of Monroe County's fastest-growing community for more than 14 years.

But he did say he has interviewed about a dozen potential witnesses, including village employees, and would talk with about 10 more in the next few weeks.

Mr. Burtch, 39, said he had not been contacted by Sergeant Meyer but has no doubt he will be cleared of any wrongdoing or impropriety.

"If [Sergeant Meyer] would just ask me for the receipts, it would clear up a lot. I go out of my way to make sure whatever I do is appropriate and reimbursable," Mr. Burtch said.
