Elk Grove Township Assessor Connie Carosielli and her staff toured the Cook County Board of Review April 5 after receiving an invitation from Board of Review Commissioner Dan Patlak.

With the Boards recent move to the Digital Appeals Processing System (DAPS), Patlak says viewing operations is useful to see how the process has improved. From the elimination of paper files to significantly reduced hearing wait times, the entire appeal system has been streamlined.

Its beneficial to visit the Board of Review every couple years to meet with Commissioner Patlak to learn changes and ensure we are providing our constituents in Elk Grove Township with accurate information about the property assessment appeal process, said Carosielli.

The Cook County Board of Review is wrapping up its 2016 Assessment Appeal Session and will reopen for the 2017 Assessment Appeal Session on Aug. 1.
