The Shaftsbury Town Office is located at 61 Buck Hill Road. Buck Hill is just before the Shaftsbury Country Store heading North on Route 7A. We are the third building on the left. This is an old stone church.
The Town Clerk plays a central role in the operation of local government, with duties that bring the Clerk into regular contact with the public. The Clerk’s statutory duties range from recording, preserving and certifying public documents to administering oaths of office, complying with public information requests, posting notices on the town’s bulletin board, running the local elections, certifying the grand list prepared by the listers, selling fish and game licenses, issuing marriage licenses and licensing animals. The town clerk has many unofficial duties as well which vary from town to town.
