Town Clerk

The Town Clerk was the first official appointed by the colonists when they established the town in 1638. At that time the clerk was responsible for writing and recording all the town records. Those records still exist and provide an accurate description of life in the colonies.

Duties Today

Today, the duties of the clerk have changed greatly, although one duty is still maintaining town records. We also serve as the local registrar, issuing marriage licenses and copies of birth, marriage, and death records.

We register motor vehicles, boats, OHRVs and issue hunting and fishing licenses as well as license dogs. The office collects over four million dollars annually, in taxes and fees for both town and state.

In addition, we handle all phases of federal, state and local elections, from registering new voters, issuing absentee ballots, taking official minutes, printing ballots, to recording and certifying the votes.
