Homewood officials to host public meeting about home rule issue on Thursday

The Village of Homewood Board of Trustees will hold an informational meeting about home rule at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, at the Marie Irwin Center, 18120 Highland Ave. in Homewood. The village is proposing to put the question of home rule before voters in a March 2018 referendum. Illinois communities with a population of 25,000 or more are automatically home rule communities. Because Homewood's population is under 20,000 the question must be decided by residents.The informational meeting will begin with a short presentation on home rule, then the floor will be opened . . .
