About Our Department
The Office of Town Clerk is a diversified position with many duties and responsibilities that are contained mainly in Section 30 N.Y.S. Town Law. Basically, the Town Clerk is the legal custodian of all town records, and therefore, is also the town's Records Management Officer responsible for the creation and maintenance of a comprehensive Records Management Program. She is the town's Licensing Agent, responsible for issuing all conservation licenses (fishing, hunting, trapping, etc.), dog licenses, marriage licenses, peddler's permits, handicapped parking permits, and other licenses mandated by various state and local laws.

The Town Clerk must also complete and accurately record the proceedings of each Town Board Meeting. In addition, the Woodbury Town Clerk serves as Registrar of Vital Statistics, recording and maintaining files on all births and deaths; and Records Access Officer, the officer who accepts and processes FOIL (Freedom of Information) Requests. She is also a Notary Public. Her position is elected and carries a four year term.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get copies of records of interest in the Town?
A written request must be submitted for access to records. CLICK HERE TO obtain the form. Copies of all paper records cost $.25 per copy. Copies of video tape recordings can also be obtained, however, the cost will vary.

Must I license my dog, and, if so, how can I do so?
All dogs in New York State, at least four months of age, must be licensed. Since Orange County has been declared a “rabies-free county,” a dog license can not be issued without proof the dog has an up-to-date rabies vaccination. The fee is $20.00 for dogs not spayed/neutered, and $10.00 for dogs that are. Proof of spaying/neutering must be submitted to the Clerk's office before the discount can be given. If a dog is licensed as a result of enumeration, a $5.00 fee is added. Licenses range from one to three years in length. Seniors 65+ have reduced fees of $3.00 for unaltered dogs and $1.00 for altered dogs. CLICK HERE to download the dog license application.

How can I place a message on Channel 22 (Woodbury Community Channel)?
You can submit your message in writing to the Town Clerk's Office. The Channel is available for non-profit organizations only and can be seen only by households in Woodbury that have cable television.

What is needed to obtain a marriage license?
Both individuals to be wed must be present when applying for a marriage license. The fee is $40.00. It must be obtained at least 24 Hours prior to the ceremony and is valid for 60 days. A driver's license or passport and a certified birth certificate, must be presented as well as all final divorce papers (if applicable). An appointment is needed to obtain a marriage license. Once an appointment is made, the license will be issued while the couple waits about 10 minutes. After the marriage is complete, the couple will receive an original marriage certificate from the Town Clerk by mail. Each additional certified copy costs $10.00. An appointment is required.
