About Us

As the Office of Records Management, the City Clerk's Office is involved with many aspects of city government including the City Council, our legislative body, and The Board of Estimate and Contract, which approves city expenditures.

The City Clerk's Office is also known as the Licensing Bureau. Over 91 different types of City and New York State licenses and permits are issued to individuals and businesses.  In addition, Primary and General Elections for the City of Mount Vernon are coordinated by the City Clerk's Office. The City Clerk, as Registrar, is responsible for maintaining Mount Vernon's Birth and Death Records. For Death and Birth records please contact the Deputy Registrar.

For legal forms, divorces, domestic partnerships, apostille, food handler permit, passports, foreclosure/liens, deeds, judgements, business certificates, pistol permits and so much more, please visit the official website of the Westchester County Clerk.
