The Town Clerk is responsible for many duties as prescribed by New York State Law such as Dog Licensing, DEC Conservation Licenses, Registrar of Marriage Licenses, Records Management Officer of Town Records and Handicapped Permits. The Town Clerk is also the Receiver of Taxes and is responsible for the collection of taxes. We are here to assist you and to help you with these and any other services that you require. Laws mandate many additional duties, but many clerks go well beyond those mandates as they serve as a major source of information to all.
