Riverside Foods has been the neighborhood grocery store in Riverside since 1981. And Peter Boutsikakis, the current owner of Riverside Foods, plans to continue that tradition for years to come by continuing to adapt and serve the changing needs of our community.
In our conversation, we discuss Peter's family history with the store, how he personally transitioned from a career in urban planning & design to running Riverside Foods, and the adjustments Peter and his team continue to make to accommodate the changing needs of his customers in the digital age as their local neighborhood grocery store.
I think you'll enjoy my conversation with our neighbor, Peter Boutsikakis.
While many folks (myself included) already appealed their property taxes through the Cook County Assessor's Office earlier this year, a new, separate window is now open allowing you to appeal your property taxes through the Cook County Board of Review.
The appeal window for Riverside Township opens today, August 1st and closes on August 30th. And I'm happy to report that the folks at the Riverside Township Assessor's office make the process easy.
If you've used the Assessor's Office to appeal your property taxes before, you probably got an email like the one I received above sometime last week. Make sure you check your spam folder in case you missed it.
If you didn't receive an email or can't find it, you can email the Assessor's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name, address, and phone number. They will then email you a list of comparable properties along with step by step instructions on filing your own appeal online through the Cook County Board of Review.
The whole process took me five minutes to complete today which is not bad for the opportunity to save some serious money on my property taxes. I hope this quick guide helps you do the same!
Welcome neighbor and thanks for stopping by. My name is Brian Plain and I'll be your host.
