    The Board of Trustees shall have the general care and management of the prudential interests and affairs of said Village; shall assess all taxes and make out a rate-bill accordingly; shall direct the expenditure of all moneys belonging to said Village, draw orders upon the Treasurer and generally perform all the duties legally enjoined upon them by said corporation, and shall submit their accounts and vouchers to the auditors at least 10 days before the annual meeting of each year. Said trustees shall have power to abate taxes laid or assessed by virtue of this Charter; to remit fines imposed for the violation of this charter or the bylaws of said corporation, and to discharge offenders from imprisonment for the same. The power of said trustees to abate taxes shall be subject to the same limitations and may be exercised for the same causes as stated and mentioned in section 2,736 of the Revised Laws. The trustees shall fill a vacancy in a Village office, and a person so appointed shall serve for the unexpired time, unless superseded; but the Village may, at any time before the expiration of such term, supersede such an appointment by a new election at a special meeting, for the remainder of the term.
