The staff in the City Clerk's Office can notarize documents.
Please identification with you and don’t sign the document until you are in the office. The person making the statement is the person who should come before the notary. Depending on the document, there may be a small fee.
Even if nothing has changed in your household since last year, please return your census form!
Massachusetts state law requires that each community conduct an annual census to update their voter’s lists and to provide accurate information for the Jury Commissioner. The census information is also used by other city agencies, including the School Department. From the census we are required by state law to publish a “street listing”. Only certain people (certain public safety officials, etc.) are exempt from appearing in the street listing.
If you did not get a census form in January, please contact the City Clerk's Office at 529-1460 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you may print out and complete the census form here and return it to the City Clerk's Office.
Not businesses. Not political organizations. Not a well-meaning group of people wanting to raise money to help a friend injured in an accident.
