The Thornton Township Board voted Jan. 10 to approve a referendum for placement on ballots in the April 4 election, putting the decision to establish a mental health board in the hands of Thornton Township residents. Trustee Gerald Jones was absent for the vote, but the remaining trustees voted in favor.
Voters in Homewood north of 183rd Street and east of Western Avenue are in Thornton Township and will see the issue on their ballots.
