Clarkstown nabs Ramapo town assessor for vacant slot

Scott Shedler has been the assessor of Ramapo for 20 years; now he’s moving on to the same position in Clarkstown.

Town Supervisor George Hoehmann told the Rockland County Times “Scott is considered one of the best assessors in New York State. He’s an expert, honest and a straight shooter with a reputation for being accessible and really opening his office up to the people.”

Shedler had his hands full investigating requests for non-profit status from houses of worship in Ramapo. Despite the numerous controversies in Ramapo over the issue of homes receiving non-tax status due to worship activities, Shedler’s reputation in Rockland has remained unstained.

Even critics in the town said Shedler has a good reputation.

Preserve Ramapo Chairman Bob Rhodes said, “Scott really does have a reputation for integrity. I am sure he is happy to leave that cesspool. Scott is getting a good raise and Clarkstown is a much happier place.”

Shedler said he’s always wanted to work for Clarkstown because he used to do work for them as a consultant.  Shedler’s main task will be to make it easier for town residents to understand the assessment process and to make sure people are paying what they’re supposed to pay.
