Board of Assessment Review (BAR) for the Town/Village of East Rochester

BAR Vacancy

The Board of Assessment Review is a three-member board, appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Town/Village Board to a five-year term.  The three-member board serves without compensation.  The Board of Assessment Review’s sole purpose is to guarantee taxpayers’ rights by hearing real property complaints (grievances) and arriving at fair and impartial determinations regarding those complaints.  The Real Property Tax Law requires that members of the Board of Assessment Review have knowledge of property values in the assessing unit.  Members are required to disclose any direct or indirect interest they have in any property for which a complaint has been filed.  Each member of the BAR shall attend the required training, typically 2-3 hours once every term.  The training is provided by the Real Property Tax Director of Monroe County and covers the functions, duties, and responsibilities of the Board of Assessment Review.  Grievance hearings are held for at least four hours the first Tuesday of June.   

The Town/Village has a vacancy to fill for the 2024 Assessment Roll.  Interested individuals should send via email a letter of interest and general qualifications to: Martin G. D’Ambrose, Village Administrator at mdambrose@eastrochester.org
