VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) — The longtime auditor in southeastern North Dakota's Barnes County is stepping down due to illness.

Ed McGough tells KOVC radio that he has been battling a blood infection related to kidney stones.

He says his condition improved earlier this year but the illness has returned.

McGough has been the Barnes County auditor for about a quarter century.

His final day is Wednesday.
