Anne McCaffrey
Lockport Mayor Anne McCaffrey announced the appointment of a new assessor via a press release this afternoon.

The new assessor will be Tracy Farrell, formerly of  the Niagara County Office of Real Property Tax Services.

Farrell will make $60,000 annually.

McCaffrey's full release follows:
“I’m pleased to announce that I have selected a new City Assessor. After reviewing applications, I was impressed with Ms. Farrell’s application and equally impressed with her interview. She has two decades of experience performing appraisals and working in the Niagara County Office of Real Property Tax Services. She has a Bachelor’s Degree from Russell Sage College. Her knowledge of appraisals and assessments from the county perspective will be an asset to the City’s Department. Ms. Farrell is a city resident and taxpayer.”

“While I continue to maintain that the city would have been well-served by entering into a shared services agreement with Niagara Falls, the Common Council made it clear, by overriding my veto, that they wanted a full-time assessor.”

“Ms. Farrell will provide the leadership and direction to move the Assessment Department forward. She has assured me that her goal is consistent with mine – which is to perform fair and equitable assessment services to city taxpayers.”

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance has confirmed in writing that Ms. Farrell meets the qualification standards for sole appointed assessor as prescribed in Real Property Tax Law and 20 NYCRR 8188.

Ms. Farrell will be paid $60,000 annually, which is less than the $68,000 that the Common Council allocated to the position.
