WTIP hosts program on proposed county levy

On December 1st the Commissioner’s Room in the Cook County Courthouse exploded with angry taxpayers attending the Truth in Taxation public meeting. Emotions ran high and at times it may have been difficult to sort out the truth of some of the information and opinions expressed.

Join WTIP’s Jay Andersen when we assemble a panel to walk you through your 2017 proposed property tax information. We’ll discuss the county budget, the levy increase and how the assessment process works.

Our panel includes Auditor-Treasurer Braidy Powers, Commissioner Heidi Doo-Kirk, Assessor Todd Smith and County Administrator Jeff Cadwell.

We can’t change your tax statement or soften the blow, but we can help you better understand what it means. Third Thursday Community Conversation -- “Taxes: Where did those numbers come from?” Only on WTIP North Shore Community Radio.
