Assessor's Department - $389,965

About the Assessor's Department

The Assessor’s Department is responsible for determining the value of real and personal property for the purpose of taxation. Assessors are required to assess all property at its full and fair market value as of January 1st each year. To accomplish this, they gather the pertinent characteristics of each parcel of property and use the information to determine appropriate valuation schedules for various classes of property. The Assessor's Department is also responsible for the administration of property tax data records and the maintaining of parcel ownership data based upon recorded property transactions at the Registry of Deeds. Finally, they oversee billing for motor vehicle excise tax, statutory and local exemptions, and abatements.

1 Sprague Street
Malden, MA 02148
Telephone: 781-397-7383
Fax: 781-397-7390

Goals and Objectives

  • Evaluate the entire communication systems and the municipal fire loop in the City.
  • Review and examine the option of a regional dispatch.
  • Explore the training, use and application of NARCAN which can provide a life-saving resource for the City.
  • Continue to increase the exposure of the Fire Department through public service meetings, informative handouts and by getting the fire apparatus out into the community.

Account Summary

The adopted budget for this department is increased by 3 percent due to the cost of the firefighters who were previously funded through the expired SAFER grant. This results in a staffing level of 110. Additionally, an anticipated retirement will not be backfilled and instead be used to cover overtime costs within this department.

Goals and Objectives

  • Offer educational opportunities and continuing legal education courses for staff.  
  • Create primers/tutorials for City staff who are regularly involved in legal matters, for example, items needed for contract review and a realistic timeframe, 30B information, code violation information and appeal rights.
  • Set up an internal in-house legal database for Department Heads and the Legal Department to share regarding contract review.

Account Summary

The adopted budget for this department is increased by over 10 percent primarily due to the addition of labor negotiation services to assist with Fire, Police, and Public Works contracts. Additionally, the Municipal Hearing Officer’s stipend was moved into this account because of the legal aspect of the position.

About the Veterans' Services Department

The Veterans' Services Department offers assistance to any person who served in the Armed Forces and who may be entitled to receive benefits from either Local, State or Federal agencies.

Goals and Objectives

Combine that with free tuition and fee waivers from state colleges and universities, those funds can be used for rent/housing and daily necessities.

Goals and Objectives
