Cook County Assessor's Office Announces Listening Tour
The Cook County Assessor’s Office, in partnership with members of the Cook County Board of Commissioners, announced its first set of dates today for its countywide Listening Tour, which will allow taxpayers to hear directly from Assessor Fritz Kaegi about his plans for the office.
Beginning in April, the Assessor’s Listening Tour is part of a commitment to transparency in the administration of the office. In addition to hearing directly from Assessor Kaegi about his work, attendees can ask questions and get a progress report about the new Assessor’s efforts to create more accurate and fair assessments.
“I’m elected by the voters, by the taxpayers of Cook County,” said Assessor Kaegi. “We’re accountable to them. So we have a responsibility to demonstrate our accountability and give taxpayers an update on our efforts so far.”
The Listening Tour fulfills a key part of Assessor Kaegi’s 100 Day Plan. The Assessor will visit each district in the county at least once, present an update on the office’s plans for increased fairness, ethics and transparency, and engage in a moderated “fireside chat” with a community leader chosen by the Commissioner of that district. Audience Q&A will follow.
Each stop on the listening tour is co-sponsored by a commissioner of the Cook County Board.
“We pledged to work directly with the Commissioners on reforms for our office,” said Assessor Kaegi. “They’re all great advocates for their constituents’ concerns about assessments. We’ve received great feedback so far and look forward to working with them on our Listening Tour.”
To ensure information about the Assessor’s Office is as accessible as possible, language translation services will be available at many of the stops on the tour and will be listed on the flyer. For more information on which languages are available, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
