Welcome to the City of New Britain Town Clerk’s web page. The Town Clerk is an elected official sworn to uphold constitutional law and the ordinances of New Britain. Our office is the active main hub of New Britain government that links its residents and businesses with New Britain's vital statistics and records. New Britain archives (records since 1850) are an invaluable resource for the public, historians, and businesses.
It is our goal to provide accurate and timely information and assist you in obtaining access to your town information and services. Since 1850, the Town Clerk has securely kept the vital statistics of more than 1 million births, deaths, marriages, trade names, military discharges and land record documents. The Town Clerk also functions as the City Clerk, Registrar of Vital Statistics and Clerk of the Common Council. Duties also involve maintaining records of election records, all city ordinances, charter, minutes and proceedings of common council and commission meetings. The Town Clerk's Office issues a variety of licenses such as dog licenses, business licenses, trade names, etc. and has a notary public on our staff. The Town Clerk also plays a vital role in elections, is custodian of the city seal, and administers oaths.
Each year we serve over 16,000 customers and process over 45,000 transactions. We are excited about our land record portal that provides off-site 24/7 access, retrieval and printing of New Britain's land records, e-recordings (NOW AVAILABLE), and more on-line documentation to make your visit to the Town Clerk's Office or web page more pleasant and productive.
