EVANS — The town of Evans has formally introduced its new assessor, Jeneen Lomando McSkimming.
Supervisor Keith Dash officially welcomed McSkimming, who replaced outgoing Jeanie Ebersol as the new assessor for the town of Evans.
“I would like to officially introduce the newest assessor for the town of Evans, Jeneen Lomando McSkimming, who was appointed by this town board effective Oct. 1,” Dash said, during the Oct. 2 board meeting. “I know Jeneen is looking forward to assisting the residents of the town of Evans and will help to allow us to turn a new page in Evans, as far as becoming more efficient, as well as providing more service to our town.”
The supervisor, speaking for the entire town board, said that he was looking forward to working with the new assessor.
McSkimming said that she is excited about the challenge and getting to work closely with the people of Evans.
“I look forward to taking over the job and working with the residents of the town, the staff and also the town board,” McSkimming said. “In the future, I’m hoping that we become a little bit more taxpayer-friendly in our office.”
Dash said that he expects no lack of service to residents and thinks that McSkimming will make this a seamless change.
“I think we have a smooth transition from assessor to assessor, because we are getting somebody who not only has experience, but also becomes highly qualified,” Dash said. “Mrs. McSkimming comes with recommendations from the county, both from the head of the Erie County Real Property Services, as well as the county executive. I don’t think there is going to be any issue with transition. She has met with her staff and they already know what is expected of them, before she even hit the ground running, and that to me speaks volumes, when you hire a new employee.”
McSkimming started working with the town of Evans as a part-time assessment clerk under her father, in 1992. In 2007, she was New York state-certified and took over the town of Boston assessor position. In 2010, she also took over the town of Cheektowaga, via a municipal agreement.
The shared municipal agreement runs from Oct. 1 of this year until Sept. 30, 2019, with an annual cost to the town of $50,520, paid to Cheektowaga in quarterly installments. McSkimming will be splitting her time between Evans and Cheektowaga.
“I’m looking forward to the opportunity,” she said. “It’s good to be back home.”
