Hope you received the letter below in the mail recently. We need to find a way to bring more equity and fairness to the Illinois property tax system. Cook County has has brought upon us their third largest tax increase in history this year, making some residents see thousands of dollars in a tax bill increase. Cook County is the only county in the state where township Assessors have zero say in the assessed value of properties.

Cook County residents ​are currently receiving their property tax bills ​in the mail, ​and many will be faced with a substantial increase in payments due. This increase is attributed to many factors, and is fairly evenly spread across our community and throughout Cook County.

An average homeowner in Cicero will pay approximately $4,800 in property taxes for the year 2020 (payable now in 2021). In Cicero, our tax rate is actually almost 2% lower than last years' rate.
For example, a single family home in Cicero, could break down like this:

2019 Assessed Value​$11,000 (10% of estimated sale value)
Multiplied by 2019 State Equalizer of 2.9160% makes assessed value of $32,076
Multiplied by 2019 Cicero Tax rate of 16.981% makes total taxes due of $5,446
Subtract Homeowners Exemption of $1,500 makes total taxes due $3,946

2020 Assessed Value $14,404 (increased after re-assessment by Cook County Assessor’s Office last year)
Multiplied by 2020 State equalizer of 3.2234% makes assessed value of $46,430
Multiplied by 2020 Cicero Tax rate of 13.020% makes total taxes due $6,045
Subtract Homeowners Exemption of $1,300 makes total taxes due $4,745

Most of the increase in Cicero tax bills is due to the higher property value in town as it relates to the taxing obligations. Additionally, the Cicero school districts (District 99, District 201, Morton College) make up 49% of the tax bill funding needed. The rest of the different taxing district obligations are comprised of mainly Cook County government, the Water Reclamation District and the park district. Additionally, a state “equalizer” is applied to our bills. This is a method used by the State of Illinois for finding a means to equal out the tax obligation, however as applied to the Cicero properties it has brought upon a large portion of our tax bill increase as well.

There will be an appeal period coming soon in Cook County. Residents can call the office of Cicero Town Assessor Emilio “Emo” Cundari to be placed on a list for notification when the appeal period opens,
at 708-656-3600, ext. 225, 226 or 228.
***NOTE: An approved appeal from Cook County will not lower your current tax bill, but could lower your assessed property value which would be shown on your second installment payment in Fall 2022.

Cicero District 99, Town of Cicero President Larry Dominick and the Town of Cicero Board of Trustees, and the Cicero Mexican Cultural Committee partnered to bring the annual Las Posadas program online to the community.

Each year, Cicero District 99 teams up with the Town of Cicero and the Cicero Mexican Cultural Committee (CMCC) to celebrate the Hispanic culture of neighborhood families and ring in the Christmas season with Las Posadas, a traditional event which celebrates Joseph and Mary’s journey to Bethlehem for the birth of Jesus and features holiday music, food and fellowship.

On Wednesday, Dec. 16, Cicero District 99 Schools Supt. Rudy Hernandez, Cicero Assessor Emilio "Emo" Cundari, Cicero Library Board Director Sandra Tomschin and District 99 School Board President Tom Tomschin were on hand to greet the children who helped decorate the 16 Christmas Trees located at Cicero CommunityPark.

The event was recorded and will be available to view online beginning Friday at 5 PM on the Cicero School District 99 page.

Despite conditions with the pandemic limiting social gatherings this season, President Dominick, District 99 and the Cicero Mexican American Cultural Committee wanted to deliver holiday cheer and goodwill and celebrate the Posada, this time, with a virtual presentation — “Cicero Celebrates Las Posadas.”

The hour-long virtual celebration will feature performances from local singers, holiday carols and ballads from District 99’s band and choral students, video of Christmas trees decorated by school families at Cicero Community Park, and stories on the rich history of las posadas.

In preparation for the event, teachers from across District 99 have facilitated virtual lessons with families to create Christmas ornaments for both trees at home and the family’s school tree at Cicero Community Park.

The virtual journey also includes stops for audiences to discover and explore the beloved holiday traditions of other cultures as well, including Kwanzaa and Hanukkah.

“Cicero Celebrates Las Posadas” will also feature Univision Chicago talent Omar Ramos as emcee, along with words from some of the District and Town’s leaders.

Make sure to check out the video broadcast of this year's event on the District 99 page, website and YouTube channel at https://www.facebook.com/CiceroDistrict99.

Town President Larry Dominick and the Town of Cicero Board of Trustees including Clerk Maria Punzo-Arias, Supervisor Joe Virruso, Assessor Emilio "Emo" Cundari, Collector Fran Reitz and Trustees Larry Banks, Victor Garcia, Bob Porod and John Cava wish everyone a safe, healthy and Merry Christmas.

Cicero kicked off the Town of Cicero's annual Christmas in the Park celebration on Sunday. Although the event was more somber with far fewer people in attendance because of the pandemic, the park has been decorated with brilliant Christmas lights and holiday figurines.

"The Christmas in the Park lighting of the Christmas Tree and placement of the holiday decorations is a tradition we must maintain and continue," President Larry Dominick said.

"Seeing the lights and the tree reminds us all of what we have to be thankful for, and that the most important thing in our lives is our families, our faith, and our health safety."

Assessor Emilio "Emo" Cundari and a group of volunteers officially turned on the lights of the Town of Cicero's Christmas Tree Sunday evening.

"This year's Christmas Tree symbolizes not only our faith but also our confidence and determination that the community will persevere through this pandemic," Cundari said.

"We hope the beautiful lights on the Christmas Tree at Community Park will bring some happiness and strength to those who might be struggling through the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a reminder that we are all in this together."

Here are photos from the Christmas Tree lighting Sunday and the decorations in Community Park.
