Forms and Information
The Office of the Township Clerk, staffed by a Township Clerk and a Deputy Clerk, serves three broad functions: serves as secretary to the Township Committee, coordinates general, local and school board elections, issues a variety of local licenses. Acting as secretary to the governing body, the Office of Township Clerk maintains all records with regard to the township's local ordinances, resolution and public proceedings. This office prepares the minutes for all township committee meetings, processes, records and files ordinances and resolutions, and arranges for legal advertising of ordinances and official documents. The clerk also handles voter registration, accepts petitions for vacancies in local elected offices, furnishes materials for local school elections, selects polling areas and maintains custody of election results. The Clerk also serves as Sandyston's licensing and permitting official issuing the requisite documentation for the following: liquor licenses, marriage licenses, livery operations, solicitor activities, bingo and other raffles. As the steward of the township's records, the clerk's office is a major source of information for residents. As such, Open Public Record requests are processed through this office.
