The Clerk acts as a licensing agent for several New York State agencies, a passport agent for the United States Department of State, the Town’s Records Management Officer and Freedom of Information Law Officer, and as Clerk of both the Town Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals. The Town Clerk also issues various local permits and handles complaints about residential trash service.

The merchant charges 2.45%, with a minimum of $1.75.  

These fees go directly to the merchant, a third party processor and are not retained by the Town.
