What does an Assessor do?
Each year, appointed assessors must complete an average of 24 hours of continuing education. Both elected and appointed assessors may attain any of three advanced designations awarded by ORPS: State Certified Assessor-Advanced, State Certified Assessor-Professional, and State Certified Assessor-National.
The assessor maintains the municipality's assessment roll -- the document containing each property assessment. The physical description (or inventory) and value estimate of every parcel is kept current. The property inventory is available for inspection by appointment before the filing of the tentative assessment roll.
