The Clerk's Office is frequently considered the center of Town government. It is not only the office responsible for recording the activities of Town government, but is it the central place where the documents and papers vital to the lives of the townspeople are filed.
The Town Clerk's Office in East Hampton is open Monday thru Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm, Saturday mornings from March 22 thru June 28, from 9:00am to 12:00 noon. The Montauk Annex has been relocated to the Montauk Playhouse Building. Marriage Licenses are done Monday thru Friday only, 9:00am to 3:30pm in the East Hampton Office only. Call for a list of documents needed to obtain a license and/or for costs associated, all documents must be originals or certified copies, and must be in English. A list of certified translators is available at the Town Clerk's Office.
The Town Clerks serves as record keeper of all Town Board meetings, posts notices, and keeps minutes of those Board Meetings. The Town Clerk issues certificates of birth, death, and other vital statistics; Town Licenses/permits, beach parking permits, recycling permits, shellfish permits, marriage licenses, New York State hunting and fishing licenses, and dog licenses.
Starting in 2010 the Town will once again be issuing Free Resident beach parking permits. If you have a small resident permit (white with a blue border, business card size) with the proper license plate number that is legible you are fine, if not you need a new permit.
If you do need a new permit proofs of residency are: Vehicle Registration, with a local street address, (not a post office box) within the Town of East Hampton; vehicle registration and deed for property in the Town of East Hampton in the same name; or voter registration card for the Town and vehicle registration in the same name.
