One of the oldest government positions in England, the Town Clerk is gateway to the Town and a resource of information. We are the keeper of the records, documenting the history of Sterling. This office is in possession of records and letters from the early 1700's. All permanent records are currently stored in the Town's vault. These records include birth, marriage and death records, Town Reports, Selectmen's minutes, Street Lists, census, business certificates, dog licenses, fuel tank licenses and a myriad of legal documents and maps.
The Town Clerk is mandated by the Secretary of State, Attorney General's Office and the Department of Revenue (DLS Division) to maintain compliance of approximately 376 Massachusetts General Laws.
