Road Resurfacing Project Nearing Completion

On Friday, August 26, 2021 Gallagher Paving began a road resurfacing project On Richmond Street from 147th Street to 150th Street, on Sacramento Avenue from 147th Street to 149th Street, and Albany Street from 145th Street to 144th Street. Also complete were the entry points from 147th Street to the alley entrance on Troy, Albany, and Whipple which included regrading the north alley entry. We are pleased to announce that we are now in the final phase of this project as Gallagher Paving applied the top surface and made final adjustments to sewer heights. The last of the project will include grass repairs in the parkway where curbs were replaced. As grass is replaced we ask our residents to please help us out to water the new grass so it looks great for the spring. Finally… A huge Thank You to all the residents on these streets who help this project along by moving your vehicles and keeping the road clear. Your cooperation helped move the project along without any delays.

  Homeowners: Are you missing exemptions on your property tax bill? How to apply for Certificate(s) of Error COOK COUNTY – As homeowners in Cook County receive their 2020 Second Installment Tax Bills (tax bill) in the mail they are encouraged to look at the bottom left corner to ensure that the correct exemption(s) are applied. If a homeowner believes they are entitled to an exemption that is not reflected on their tax bill, they can apply for what is called a Certificate of Error. The Certificate of Error process provides homeowners an opportunity to redeem missing exemptions for up to three years in addition to the current tax year. Homeowners can now apply for the 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2017 tax years. Property Tax Bill   Certificate of Error applications with copies of supporting documentation can be filed online, by mail, or in person. Homeowners are strongly encouraged to apply online as representatives from the Assessor’s Office can easily provide updates on the status of applications. Please see the full list of property tax exemptions administered by the Assessor’s Office here: This year, many exemptions auto-renewed to make the process more convenient for homeowners. In addition to the Homeowner and Senior exemptions, the Assessor’s Office processed auto-renewals for the “Senior Freeze”, Veterans with Disabilities, and Persons with Disabilities exemptions. In total, more than 1.1 million exemptions were auto-renewed, which provided millions of dollars in tax relief to homeowners in Cook County. As a reminder, homeowners are responsible for paying the entirety of the tax bill to the Cook County Treasurer’s Office by October 1, 2021. If the Certificate of Error application is granted, either a corrected tax bill or a refund for the difference will be issued.
