Town Clerk & Treasurer
COVID19 Updated Procedures:
Thank you for your patience and support during the COVID-19 pandemic. When it comes to re-opening the clerk’s office to the public, I have thought of little else and considered many sources. While the prospect of re-opening the state, country, and world is exciting, it comes with tremendous responsibility and risk. The following the first of a three phase plan outlining how we are going to start rolling out re-opening the clerk’s office to you.
Phase I: April 20th to approximately May 15th 2020:
We expend a great amount of energy in making our records available online to everyone. Please continue use USLandrecords.com as much as possible. For everyone’s safety, you are only allowed to access the clerk’s office and the vault.
This is the current procedure to access our vault:

We will sanitize at the beginning middle and end of the day. This routine will be the "new norm". In addition, I will be sanitizing between appointments.
