Our Accomplishments 2021 - 22:

The Town Clerk's office has made significant progress in preserving, maintaining, and accessing our most valuable records from both the past and present.

Major accomplishments for Fiscal Year 2021 / 2022 have included:

  • Through the State Library Historic Document Preservation Grant, we secured funding to perform a five-year re-indexing of our Grantor/Grantee land records to serve as a backup should our computers not be functioning.
  • Due to being proactive during the COVID restrictions placed upon us by Executive Orders, we were able to continue the essential and critical functions of our office by implementing measures which allowed our clients to access land records electronically, obtain their marriage licenses, and for funeral homes to file their death certificates while our staff worked both in office and remotely.
  • With No In-person recordings, we accepted all documents through eRecordings, FedEx, UPS and through a drop box which staff recorded, indexed and scanned as required by state statute.  
  •  A Comprehensive Election Plan was formulated and executed for the November 2020 election as a means of addressing the colossal task of processing absentee ballots and issuance of ballots given by the State to the Town Clerks on short notice.  A satellite office was established and temporary assistants hired for processing the 43,000 absentee ballot applications mailed out by the State.   This was an incredible undertaking as in 2016 we issued 2063 ballots and in 2020 we issued 12,454 ballots.
