Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi next month will launch a listening tour with several suburban stops to allow taxpayers to hear directly from him about his plans for the assessor's office.

"I'm elected by the voters, by the taxpayers of Cook County," Kaegi said in an announcement of the tour. "We're accountable to them. So we have a responsibility to demonstrate our accountability and give taxpayers an update on our efforts so far."

Kaegi will visit each district in the county at least once, present an update on the office's plans for increased fairness, ethics and transparency, and engage in a moderated "fireside chat" with a community leader chosen by the commissioner of that district. Audience questions will follow.

Stops include: Grand at Twin Lakes, 920 E. Northwest Highway, Palatine, 10:30 a.m. -- noon, April 6; Trickster Art Gallery, 190 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg, 1-2:30 p.m., April 6; Wilmette Park District Community Recreation Center, 3000 Glenview Road, Wilmette, 6:30-8 p.m., April 9; and Schiller Park Community Center, 4501 25th Ave., Schiller Park, 6-7:30 p.m., April 10.
