ATTLEBORO — Julie Hobson of North Attleboro is the city’s new chief assessor.
City councilors voted 11-0 Tuesday to confirm her nomination made by the three-member board of assessors and Mayor Paul Heroux.
Hobson replaces Stanley Nacewicz, who’s held the job since 2002.
The board chose not to reappoint Nacewicz.
Hobson has been the city’s deputy assessor since 2015.
She was the senior assessor’s clerk in Plainville from 2013-2015 after a 23-year stint at Plainville Machine Works.
For 17 of those years she was the office manager for the firm.
Nacewicz won kind words from some councilors.
“It was always a pleasure working with Stan,” Councilor Todd Kobus said.
Councilor Peter Blais said he didn’t always concur with Nacewicz’s analyses or recommendations, but there was no acrimony in their debates.
“We had fun disagreeing,” he said.
And budget chairman Jay DiLisio thanked Nacewicz for his service.
