BOURBONNAIS — Village officials are mulling a possible property tax rebate for Bourbonnais homeowners.

According to the posted agenda for today’s 5:30 p.m. board meeting, trustees will hear the first reading of a proposed ordinance to place a referendum on the Nov. 8 general election ballot.

The village would be asking residents to increase its local sales tax by 1 percent.
