The Assessor is a local government official who is appointed by the Town Board for a term of 6 years. The Assessor has the responsibility of identifying and estimating the value of real property located within the town. At present, we have approximately 6,500 parcels. In the valuation process Realtor.com, Pictometry, Sales data, etc. are some of the tools used to arrive at value. A second function of the position requires that the Assessor review all the exemption applications submitted to the Department and then determines the status of those applications. New York State certifies all assessors and monitors the training requirements of new and experienced assessors.
The office maintains and updates an inventory database for new construction and existing property/building improvements with information from the Building Inspector, and by verifying Real Estate sales utilizing Realtor.com and other on-line sites.
