HUNTINGTON TOWN CLERK’S OFFICE

The Town Clerk’s Office is not open to the public. The front door is locked. You can contact me at the office (434-2032) or at home (434-2690) or by email: huntingtonclerk@gmavt.net. I am in the phone book.

DOGS: The May  1 extension for on-time registration has gone by. So, you will owe $19 for a spayed or neutered dog or $27. . Residents can register their dogs by mailing in their checks and new rabies certificates, if appropriate. There is a drop slot next to the front door. You can send an email or call for details about whether the current rabies certificate is on file here. We will mail your tags back to you. Stop in another time with your dog – we love to have canine – and human – visitors.

RABIES CLINIC: Postponed to a later date, to be determined.

OTHER BUSINESS AT THE OFFICE
Many of the application documents you need to do business with this office are located on this website. If you cannot find them easily, call the office and they can be emailed to you.

MARRIAGE LICENSES: You can find the application form online and email it to the Town Clerk. As is my usual practice, I will send you a proof. We will need to talk.

BIRTH AND DEATH CERTIFICATES: Certified vital records can be ordered by downloading the form: You can find the application form online and email it to the me. It remains $10 for the certified copy, which is set by statute. We will talk about how I will get this to you.

CAR REGISTRATION RENEWALS: The DMV has extended, by 90 days, registration renewals and other paperwork.  You can do this online or in the mail. You don’t need to make an appointment to come into the office while we are closed.

NOTARY PUBLIC: Call me for an appointment. We will do this outside on the front porch of the office, but not on a rainy day.

VOTER REGISTRATION: Voter registration can be done online at http://olvr.sec.state.vt.us

LAND RECORDS RESEARCHERS:
Until further dictum from the governor, the office is not open for research. We will all be the first to know when this changes. In the meantime, I will do my best to assist you.

1. Available,  by request,  indices of Grantors and Grantees from 2004 to March 5, 2020. Each document is in PDF form and is 459 pages. I have already sent these via email to attorneys and other professionals, who are on my list. These documents can be emailed at no cost. You might want to consider saving us all some time by being on the email list since you will get notice of closures and other relevant office news.
2. Any land records requests will require book and page. The documents can be emailed, along with an invoice. I WILL NOT conduct research for anyone regardless of the current situation as we do not carry Title Insurance and could be held liable should incorrect documentation be mistakenly sent.  $1 per page, usual rate.
3. A scan of the Recording Log, after March 4, 2020 will be made at the end of each day someone is in the office and will be available to researchers wishing to do title updates. This document can be emailed. No cost for the updates.
4. The Town Clerk’s Office has  Listers’ Cards, which can be emailed to you. Listers Cards are $1 per page, and this is the regular rate.
5. As part of the research, the Town Clerk can also email you a copy of a tax bill with the other documents.

We are working very hard to make the Huntington Town Clerk’s and Treasurer’s Office available to those who need access but we need your cooperation and understanding.

First and foremost at this very unsettling time is the health, safety and well-being of each other with the ultimate goal of all getting through this together. Thanks very much!
