Ed, I do recall they voted it down about 15 years ago but it might be worth revisiting. I wouldRead Moreli ke to think the Village is more trustworthy than this state has been. Once your village or township hits 25,000 in population, you automatically become home rule. We're at about 16,000 as of four years ago so I don't think we'll have much choice in the near future. The main reason though I think it's relevant is the Sports Complex. It's my understanding that our village would keep more from all the non-residents coming (ability to tax), alleviating our burden. I know about 75% of Illinois lives in Home Rule communities. I would like to hear more from knowledgeable, unbiased people though.
