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. 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 application. New York State certifies all assessors and monitors the training requirements of new and experienced assessors.
The office updates new construction and major improvements with information from the Building Inspector. We are also required to look at each parcel once every 6 years to verify the accuracy of the property records.
