Assessors would like equal playing field

KINGSTON – Municipal assessors in Ulster County would like the state to place all assessors on an equal footing by requiring re-assessments at the same time. Right now, they vary from municipality to municipality and in Ulster County, they have asked lawmakers to adopt memorializing legislation asking Albany to do that. The issue came before the Administrative Services Committee of the County Legislature Tuesday. Its Chairwoman is Jeanette Provenzano. “Assessments in all the towns and the city (of Kingston) will all be done on a regular basis so that you don’t have one town every five years, one town every 10, one town every seven,” she said. “This way, you get them on the same cycle and they are all done at the same time.” The full County Legislature must now vote on the measure before it is sent to Albany.
