New procedures for Homewood residents wishing to address their village board will apply after an ordinance was approved at the Oct. 10 meeting. Residents will be limited to three minutes for comments, which can be extended if the chair deems it necessary. Persons making comments must be “respectful and avoid obscene or insulting statements, the impugning of motives and disruptive or repetitive statements,” the ordinance says. Board members may question commenters after they are finished speaking. The public comment portion of any meeting will be limited to 30 minutes for any matter not listed on that . . .
