GREAT BARRINGTON — Ross Vivori of North Adams has been appointed as the town’s principal assessor. He began working with the town April 5. Most recently, he worked simultaneously as principal assessor for the city of North Adams and the towns of Clarksburg and Lanesborough. He has departed those positions and will work full-time in Great Barrington.
With over a decade of experience in municipal assessing, Vivori holds a bachelor of science in business management from MCLA. He is a Massachusetts Accredited Assessor and is a member of the Massachusetts Association of Assessing Officers.
He also serves as vice president of the Berkshire County Assessors Association.
“Ross will lead the town through a period of transition as we upgrade and convert our assessment software systems and as we change our tax billing from twice-yearly to quarterly,” said Town Manager Mark Pruhenski. “We welcome Ross to Great Barrington.”
