First paragraph: Village Board meeting Jan 8? Shouldn't it read Jan 22?

Yes it should. Thanks for noticing!

Ryan, is this the same TIF money that was debated in JULY, or MORE TIF money? http://homewood-flossmoor.patch.com/articles/homewood-trustees-disagree-on-new-restaurant-funding

It's the same that was approved before but not yet paid out. If my understanding is correct, the village makes the business fulfill certain obligations before they write a check. A small remainder of their full entitlement will come over the next couple of years.
