Evanston Township Assessor Bonnie Wilson says she’s hired a deputy to help assist taxpayers in her office.

The new deputy assessor is Nick Pavletic, who worked for the Cook County Assessor’s Office for 13 years as a commercial analyst, a field inspector, a taxpayer advocate and a senior residential analyst.

Wilson told the City Council’s Human Services Committee Tuesday night that her office processed 338 property tax assessment appeals from residents during the month-long appeals window that ended Aug. 17.

The assessor’s office at 846 Dodge Ave. is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and can be reached by phone at 847-332-2465.

  1. How can she hire someone when her budget was cut?

    I would like to know how she hired someone when the council cut her budget $20,000?

    Did she just overrun her budget?  Or did her council member friends say one thing in public and allow her to do something else?

    1. Assessor budget

      The cut from her budget request still left the township assessor with a bigger budget than for the previous year — enough of an increase to hire somebody on a part-time basis.

      While it wasn’t specified in the announcement, until we hear otherwise, I think it’s fair to assume the new guy is working part time.
