The City of Rochester will be reopening the Assessor’s Office after several weeks of reconstruction to the interior.
The building, which sits directly next to City Hall, previously housed the Tax and Auto Registration Office before relocating to the James W. Foley Memorial Community Center in 2021.
According to Chief Assessor, Jonathan Rice, the reconfiguration will better serve the needs of his department and improve their ability to serve the people of Rochester.
“The old configuration was challenging,” said Rice. “Now that the Tax Office and Auto Registration has moved, our team will finally be all together on one floor, have sufficient space to collaborate with one another, and have the ability to meet privately in-person with property owners.”
Rice says the Assessor’s Office is tentatively slated to reopen on Monday, April 18, 2022, for normal business hours. Until then, the department will continue to hold public sessions in Council Chambers, on the first floor of City Hall, 31 Wakefield Street.
The next session is scheduled for Thursday, April 14 from 2:30pm to 4:30pm, and Friday, April 15 from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Changes to the schedule, if any, will be posted on the Assessor’s webpage.
