Township Assessor Bonnie Wilson says reassessment notices will be mailed from the county assessors office to Evanston residents this Thursday.

It’s not yet known what the change in assessments will be — but for townships that have received notices recently it’s been a mixed bag.

Barrington Township assessments were down an average of 3.1 percent, while selling prices of homes there fell nearly 12 percent. 

In Norwood Park Township assessments declined 17.1 percent, slightly exceeding the the 16.3 percent average decline in selling prices.

Evanston residents will have until Aug. 16 to file appeals of their assessments, which can be done online through the County Assessor’s office website. 

The township assessor’s office, phone 847-332-2465, and County Commissioner Larry Suffredin’s office, phone 847-864-1209, offer assistance on filing appeals.

There’ll also be a seminar on property tax appeals Monday at 7 p.m. at the Fleedwood-Jourdain Community Center. 

The reassessment notices being mailed this week contain proposed values that will be reflected on second installment tax bills due in the fall of 2011.
