What We Do

The Township Clerk's Office strives to deliver the finest assistance to township residents. We provide convenience services such as voter registration, notary services, acceptance of passport applications, and temporary disability parking placards

The role of a Township Clerk is multi-faceted, with duties that include recording and maintaining minutes of each township meeting, publishing public notices and maintaining archives of ordinances. As new township officials are elected by our residents, the Clerk administers their oaths of office.  The Clerk's Office also serves as custodian of official records and manages the Township's historical library (located at the Township office for viewing during normal business hours).

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve residents along the North Shore. 

Jerome Hoynes, Clerk
