Home rule ordinances top the Homewood trustees agenda Tuesday

Trustees will consider five ordinances that, if adopted, would: 

  • Place the question before voters in the March 20 consolidated election whether to grant the village home rule authority
  • Place limits on some of the authorities granted by home rule status, including the promise to abide by non-home rule property tax caps for the general fund levy; to hold a public hearing about any proposed tax or fee hikes; to require a two-thirds majority to pass new tax or tax increase measures; and to abide by the non-home rule limit on the amount . . .
