Welcome to the South Burlington City Clerk’s web page.
South Burlington City Hall is closed effective Monday, November 16 but the City Clerk's office will be working behind the scenes but with a much reduced staff and limited hours. We are available by appointment for the following:
title research: by appointment by visiting our calendar. If you need the links to the calendar please call 846-4105. We will allow people to "stop by" without an appointment for research as long as there are not 2 researchers already in the office. Please go to the back door of city hall and call the phone number on the door for the clerk's office to enter the building. Hours are 9 -12 and 1-4 to allow for disinfecting.
Vital Records (death or birth certificates) Please fill out the paperwork and call the office at 846-4105 to find out which email account to use to submit the completed form as well as your identifcation. Once complete, we will set up a time to meet you outdoors to exchange the certified copy for your payment. If you use a credit card it must be submitted at the time of the request for the certified copies, otherwise cash or check are the accepted payments at pickup.
Marriage licenses and marriage certified copies: If you are looking to get married, fill out the form and call the office at 846-4105 to find out which email account to use to submit the completed form. If you are looking for a certified copy of your marriage certificate, please call 846-4105 to give us the information. Once we complete either the marriage license or certified copy, we will set up a time to meet you outdoors to exchange the license or certified copy for your payment. If you use a credit card it must be submitted at the time of the request, otherwise cash or check are the accepted payments at pickup.
