PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Anna & Charles Frontczak
DOCKET NO.: 01-25965.001-C-1
PARCEL NO.: 04-35-400-011
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board
(hereinafter PTAB) are Anna & Charles Frontczak, the appellants;
and the Cook County Board of Review.
The subject property contains a 6,340 square foot parcel of land
improved with a two-story, masonry building constructed in 1952.
The building contains three retail units on the ground floor as
well as six units on the second, the size and use thereof is one
of the issues at hearing.
At hearing, Mr. Frontczak appeared and raised two arguments:
first, that the subject property is incorrectly classified by the
assessor's office; and secondly, that the fair market value of
the subject was not accurately reflected in its assessed value.
The appellants submitted multiple documents including: a copy of
the zoning ordinance for Glenview; rental statements for the
subject from 2001 through 2003; a copy of a loan statement;
copies of a floor layouts; copies of building permits; as well as
color photographs of the building prior to and during
As to the improvement's size, the appellants' petition reflects
7,506 square feet of building area, while the appellant's brief
reflects a size of 7,826 square feet with attached rental charts
indicating a breakdown of square footage per unit. In contrast,
the board of review submitted an unsigned, one-page memorandum
stating that the subject's building included 6,755 square feet
without further documentation including the absence of the
subject's property record card.
