COVID-19 Information for Grievance Period

Greetings!  City Hall is open and the grievance process will take place in person.  Grievance period begins Monday, May 1st and will continue through 8pm on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023.   If your questions regarding the grievance process are not answered below, please send us an email at or call us at 518-382-5075.         

We will be accepting grievance applications through the USPS mail, through email at and in our office, Room 8 in City Hall. If you would like to send your grievance application through the USPS, please provide us with a self-addressed stamped envelope or an email address so that we may send you a “receipt.”   If you send your grievance application to us via the email above, please provide your property address and SBL or tax map number in the subject line of the email and attach your application as a PDF document.   We will then provide you with an email back to let you know that we have received your application.   In the event we are missing information from you on your application, we will let you know at that time and give you the opportunity to correct the issue.   If you do not hear from us to indicate that we have received your application, please give our office a call.  If you bring your application to our office, we will give you a photocopy of the first page as your receipt. 

If and when you submit a grievance application, someone from our office will be in touch with you to determine if you would like to be seen by the Board of Assessment Review on Tuesday, May 23rd, which is Grievance Day.   If you would like to be seen we will work with you to set up a time that is convenient to you.   The board will consider any and all applications submitted through grievance period, regardless of whether you choose to have an appointment with them.   It will not count against you if you do not have the ability or choose not to be seen or heard by the board.

All grievance applications must be received by 8pm on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023.   You can submit an application through email up until 8pm on the 23rd, but if you would like a meeting with the board, please give us enough time to be in touch with you and also be able to set up an appointment with the board if you would like one.
