ALTON, Ill. – To help provide more information to local residents about ways to help lower their property tax bills, state Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Alton, and state Sen. Rachelle Crowe, D-Glen Carbon, will be hosting Property Tax Relief Satellite Office Hours in Alton on November 6 and a Property Tax Relief Seminar in Granite City on November 7.
“Property taxes are one of the main issues I hear about when I am meeting people going door-to-door, and I know Illinois homeowners need relief now,” said Bristow. “As a member of the recently formed Property Tax Relief Task Force, I am working to provide long term solutions to lower property tax bills in the Riverbend Region and across the state.”
Bristow and Crowe will be hosting two property tax events in Alton and Granite City on the following dates in November:
- Property Tax Satellite Office Hours Nov. 6 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Location: Senior Services Plus 2603 N. Rogers Ave. in Alton
- Property Tax Relief Seminar Nov. 7 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Location: Granite City Township Hall 2060 Delmar Ave. in Granite City
Residents are encouraged to bring their most recent property tax bills to the events. A representative from the local township assessor’s office will be present to go over exemptions and answer questions about their bill. While everyone is welcome to attend these free events, Alton and Granite City Township residents respectfully will be able to receive more detailed information on what services are available to them.
“While we are working to provide statewide solutions to excessive property taxes, I am happy to help residents find some more immediate relief by working with local township assessor’s offices to host these events,” said Bristow. “Our property tax events help residents learn more about their property tax bill and ways they can lower it.”
