The Town Clerk’s office in the Town of Newburgh will be open from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, March 7.

Town Clerk Andrew Zarutskie announced that his office will be available for all of its normal services, including issuance of marriage licenses, the sale of new and renewal dog licenses, hunting and fishing licenses, and all notary public services.

The Town Clerk’s office has on hand voter registration forms. Persons who have moved since the last time they voted must register again. Zarutskie said that the transfer of a voter’s registration from one address to another is NOT automatic as many people seem to believe. Persons who have changed their name due to marriage or other reasons since the last time they voted, must also register again.

Zarutskie pointed out that marriage licenses can be purchased at any Town or City Hall in New York State, regardless of where the bride and groom reside, provided the wedding ceremony itself is going to be within New York State. Accordingly, couples who cannot come in during the week can report to Newburgh Town Hall on March 7. Couples seeking a marriage license must both present their birth certificates and a current picture ID. If either party had been married previously, they must show the documentation of the termination of the most recent marriage (divorce papers, annulment decree, death certificate).

Dog licenses and handicapped parking permits can be obtained ONLY from the Town Clerk where the person resides. Zarutskie’s two deputies — Jeanne M. Patterson and Brenda Milkovich — will both be on hand to assist on March 7.

Zarutskie will provide all notary public services free of charge.
Any further questions can be asked by calling 564-4554.
