While Town Clerks are generally credited with issuing licenses, that is only a small part of this complex job. Laws mandate many additional duties, but many clerks go well beyond those mandates as they serve as a major source of information to all. The Office of the Town Clerk also assists with the tax collection process for Town and County taxes.
The Town Clerk’s office has items that have been turned in that were found in the Community. If you find items please bring them to the Clerk’s office. If you’ve lost items please call the Clerk’s office to see if they’ve been turned in (607) 562-8443 Ext. 202 or 201
