Dundee merger

Every now and then, West Dundee's [Village President] Keller said, someone raises the possibility of combining East and West Dundee into a single community.

"After a while, you just think, 'Yeah, right,'" he said.

Affecting such a plan might be how residents view their hometowns, Keller said.

"We are always tied up with our own identities," he said. "If we lose our own identities, there is always a concern." (source: Elgin Courier)

What identities? Nobody even knows the difference between the two. People who have been living in the Fox Valley for decades still think that West and East are just terms of convenience and that there is only one municipality called Dundee.

I hope they merge.
