Description

The Town Clerk’s Office is considered the “hub” of town government in that it interacts on a regular basis with all municipal boards, commissions and committees.  It responds to inquiries from the public and serves as a central information point for the Town.  The Town Clerk is an elected position. The current Town Clerk, Jacqueline A. Brown, was elected with permanent tenure at the annual town election held on March 6, 2006.

The Town Clerk acts as the Town's registrar of vital statistics (births, marriages, deaths), public records & recording officer and serves as the custodian of the Town Seal. The Clerk maintains records of adopted regulations, bylaws, oaths of office, appointments and resignations. In addition, the Clerk is also the town's Chief Election Official and manages the general conduct of all elections.  The Clerk is also a  member of the Freetown Board of Registrars and oversees the voter registration and census of the town residents.

The office issues marriage license certificates, business certificates, dog licenses, and town stickers.  Copies of Town regulations, by-laws, maps and certified copies of births, marriages & death recordings are available in this office.
