City Hall announced yesterday that a new "acting assessor" has been appointed. The assessor is typically appointed for six years, but, even though at least one mayor in the past has made a six-year appointment at the end of his term, Mayor Rick Rector has made the appointment for only six months--from December 20, 2019, until June 20, 2020.
The person who will serve as acting assessor is Kimberly Smith, who currently serves as the assessor for the towns of Canaan, Greenport, and New Lebanon. Smith will be available at City Hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:15 to 4:15 p.m.
