Coroner's Office Tour
Tuesday, August 1, 2017
6:00-7:30 pm
Location: Peoria County Coroner's Office, 506 Seneca Place, Peoria

Instructor: Jamie Harwood, Coroner

Modern television crime shows have drawn more attention to the coroner's role in determining cause of death and in homicide investigations. A coroner investigates sudden, unusual, and traumatic deaths, and ensures the deceased's body is examined, identified, and, if necessary, autopsied. In cases of unnatural or questionable death, the coroner may conduct an inquest to determine the manner of death. After touring the office, enjoy light refreshments while having the opportunity to ask questions.


Proper Property Value
Tuesday, August 22, 2017
6:00-7:00 pm

Instructor: Dave Ryan, Supervisor of Assessments

Wondering if your property taxes are too high? Then this is the class for you. Peoria County's Supervisor of Assessments will explain how property is assessed and how property taxes are determined based on the assessed value. You will learn how levies imposed by taxing districts affect the total amount you owe, where your tax dollars go, and when you can appeal your property assessment (NOW rather than when the property tax bill arrives next spring). It pays to take this free class.
