Laroue Rose Shatzkin, Town Clerk


Thank you for visiting the Office of the Town Clerk. I hope you and your family and loved ones are safe and well during these trying times. Like everyone else, the Office of the Town Clerk has been pivoting on a dime to adjust to our rapidly changing situation.

We are currently operating 90% remotely per the Governor’s most recent orders and will only be in the office if absolutely necessary to conduct essential functions.

At this time, our highest priority is the processing of Vital Statistics. We will also be processing Marriage Licenses for individuals who have an urgent need to be married by appointment ONLY on the 1st and the 15th of April.

All requests for Vital Statistics can be made through the mail, and forms to make such requests can be found on our Downloadable Forms page. (see upper right-hand corner of this page for drop down menu) Please include a photocopy of your photo ID with all such requests.

Any other business will be processed as soon as is possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions whatsoever or leave a message at 914.734.1020.
