Welcome to the Town of Vernon Clerk’s Office!
The best way to understand the role of the Town Clerk’s office is to view it as the central information source for the town as well as the gateway to our local government. The Town Clerk is an elected position and serves a two (2) year term.
When residents or visitors have a question about town services, it is our office that greets them at the door. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will work with your needs in mind and will strive to provide the utmost in satisfaction when responding to your requests.
As Town Clerk I am responsible for maintaining all of our town records, complying with Freedom of Information guidelines, maintaining the town website, recording and posting all the minutes of our Town Board meetings, issuing various licenses, as well as offering voter registration and election information. I also maintain and record the finances of the town (which would include accounts payable, accounts receivable, financial reports, budget information, audit information), give legal notices for special meetings and elections, issue licenses, and in general perform all other duties required by law, ordinance or lawful direction of the town meeting or town board.
My office also provides support to the Town Chairman, Town Board, and the many other departments and divisions of your local town government. These, of course, are just a few of the things I do to help our town run smoothly on a day-to-day basis.
As your Town Clerk, I have made it my goal for the Town Clerk’s Office to treat all Town of Vernon residents with the respect they deserve and to be sensitive and responsive to their needs. I look forward to assisting you in the future and hope your experiences with our office are always pleasant and provide the satisfaction you have come to expect.
