Ryan~ Although I appreciate your efforts in reporting the news and the link you provided; my experience with questions with the village or the school district is an effort in futility!!!

You've probably already seen it, but I posted an article today regarding public input. Essentially, they are saying the entire project is too early in its development to address the details of many questions. Right now, all the answers are rather general. The good news is, once (or rather, if) gambling legislation passes, the village will be soliciting public input during the request for proposals drafting process. That will be the time to let them know your thoughts on this.

Since Homewood & Flossmoor homeowners are paying high property taxes for the HF schools, will Flossmoor also benefit from the casino to help reduce its taxes or just Homewood? I have to short-sale my Homewood home in order to keep my Flossmoor home after both of their taxes increased. It's not fair to HF homeowners paying for good schools that allow non-residents to abuse the "system" that blames our schools instead of being or held accountable for their own child if he/she is disruptive to avoid learning, sell drugs on campus or steal our investments!
