Homewood officials to discuss possible home rule limitations at Tuesday board meeting

At an informational meeting about home rule on Thursday, Village Manager Jim Marino noted that officials are aware of the concerns residents have about the potential for increased property taxes.Home rule, if approved by voters, would give the village more power than it currently has to raise taxes and incur debt.He said other communities have addressed those concerns by placing limitations on the municipality's home rule authority, and on Tuesday night, he plans to present a range of options to the board of trustees. The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. in village . . .
