Homewood trustees to discuss budget impact of COVID-19, will consider temporary suspension of places of eating tax

Homewood trustees will begin tackling the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic during the regular board meeting Tuesday. 

The board will receive a presentation on the draft budget for fiscal year 2020-21. The Finance Department is expecting a significant drop in revenue as a result of the state-mandated shutdown of much business activity since mid-March.

The board will also consider a measure at the board meeting Tuesday that would suspend the village's  2 percent places of eating for three months to help businesses hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.
