Dunnings AS Sept 7 – Oct 7 2019

Homewood residents will soon be allowed to help local businesses and enjoy a meal or a drink outside after the village board approved a measure Tuesday to regulate outdoor seating areas.

Governor J.B. Pritzker is allowing some businesses to serve food and drinks outdoors beginning Friday, May 29. Homewood needed an ordinance to facilitate that.

“It’s in the best interest of restaurants and their customers that we establish precautions to protect the safety of customers and employees when dining outdoors,” Finance Director Dennis Bubenik said in village documents.
