Property Tax Assessment
The Village Assessor determines the value of each property in the village for the purpose of determining the tax amount for the property owner.  The Assessor also maintains all records of the assessments and other appropriate documentation.  More information on the role of the assessor and assessment in general can be found here... Contact William McCarty by e-mail or call 677-2622.

The Village Clerk also performs the role of Registrar of Vital Records for the Village.  The Registrar is responsible for issuing birth and death certificates in the Village.  Our Registrar maintains the records of all births and deaths recorded at Mary McClellan Hospital prior to its closing in 2003.  Issuing copies of birth certificates has become very active in recent months as people apply for passports required for travel outside the country, including Canada.
