Mark H. Bernacki, Town & City Clerk
New Britain Town Clerk's Office
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. The town clerk also serves as the registrar of vital statistics, city clerk, and clerk of the common council. 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 two million births, deaths, marriages, trade names, military discharges, and land record documents. Duties also involve maintaining election records, all city ordinances, charter, minutes, and proceedings of the 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 its staff. The town clerk also plays a vital role in elections by processing and issuing absentee ballots, is custodian of the city seal, and administers oaths.
Each year we serve over 16,000 customers and process over 45,000 transactions - walk-in, mail, express mail, and online. We are excited about our land record portal that provides offsite 24/7 access, retrieval, and printing of New Britain's land records; e-recordings; and more online documentation to make your visit to the town clerk's office or web page more pleasant and productive.
We are happy to assist you. Our staff is among the most experienced in the state. See the menu on the left side of this page to research and obtain the information and forms you need. It will be a pleasure to serve you.
