The following is from the City of Framingham and posted today.
FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham is seeking to fill a vacancy on the Board of Assessors.
The Assessors Department is primarily responsible for determining the full and fair cash value of all real and personal property within Framingham. Under the provisions of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapters 58 to 65C, the Board of Assessors fall under the jurisdiction of the Commissioner of Revenue who may revise rules, regulations, and guidelines, as deemed necessary to establish minimum standards of assessment performance.
Before assessment values, new growth, and tax rates are set, they must be certified by the Department of Revenue on an annual basis. Every five years, the Department of Revenue will send an audit team to the City. The audit team will evaluate the methods used by the Board of Assessors in order for the City to be certified for revaluation.

Board of Assessors consists of three members appointed by the Mayor and subject to confirmation by the City Council.
