Homewood--Home Rule

LWVHF-Area will be hosting an informational meeting about Home Rule on Sunday, February 25 -- 1:30 - 3:00 pm at St. Paul Community Church, 18200  Dixie Highway in Homewood.  The Village of Homewood is proposing that Homewood become a "Home Rule" community and it will be on the March 20 ballot.  There have been several public meetings on this topic, and our League wants to give the residents of Homewood another opportunity to learn about the pros and cons of Home Rule. 

Our guest speaker will be Dr. Michael T. Peddle, Associate Professor of Public Administration in the School of Public and Global Affairs at Northern Illinois University.

All residents of Homewood are invited to attend this meeting.
