Homewood Considers New Restaurant Tax: On the Agenda

A preview of what’s going to be discussed and voted on during the Jan. 28 Homewood Village Board meeting.

Homewood trustees and Village President Richard Hofeld will meet with village staff on Tuesday, Jan. 28 for the regularly scheduled village business meeting.

Among the agenda items is a vote to create a new “Places for Eating Tax.” Should it pass, the tax will be “imposed wherever food is sold at retail for immediate consumption on the premises where seating is provided,” according to the agenda. 

Additional details of the proposed tax, such as the rate and planned implementation, were not provided in the public meeting agenda. Patch plans to follow up with more information following Tuesday's meeting.

The full agenda can be downloaded at the link above.

Do you support a “Places for Eating Tax?”

If this tax passes it should be named the "What Should Go Here" Tax.

I am waiting for them to install my new carbon dioxide monitoring system. That way they can tax me for every breath until the day I die.

If things are that bad and revenue is down how about quit wasting money $108,000 on painting Murals on buildings?

Until the citizens of Homewood actually go out and vote for a change we will have the same elected officials and the same outcome. A very small percentage of people actually vote in elections so the village and school board machines keep putting in who they want. They will continue to make bad decisions and keep wasting our money on what they want. Please wake up people.
