Assessment Notices Mailed to Cicero Township

town_of_cicero_sealAssessment notices were mailed by the Cook County Assessor’s Office to Cicero Township property owners on Tuesday, April 17th. The window to appeal your assessment in Cicero is now open through the deadline of May 17th. A second opportunity to appeal at the Board of Review will open up later this year.
