Having lived in Homewood for over 50 years, I have been thankful that competent persons have stepped up to serve our Village Board, School Boards, Park District, Library, and other such positions. There has been consistent quality of life because of their commitment, and the will of the residents. They have done this work well, and for the right reasons, benefitting us all, and our property values.

Restaurants and bars can maintain outdoor service through October after the Homewood village board extended an ordinance this week.
The board originally approved an ordinance last May aimed at encouraging outdoor food and liquor service during the COVID-19 pandemic. It extended that ordinance in October but that extension was set to expire at the end of this month.
A draft budget is being considered by the Homewood village board and it’s looking toward a brighter outlook in the post-pandemic world.
Finance Director Dennis Bubenik gave an informal presentation of a draft of the 2021-2022 budget at a village board meeting April 13.
