Queensbury Town Clerk
In compliance with the current Town of Queensbury “COVID-19 Pandemic Response Plan”, effective Wednesday, March 18th the Town Office Building will be closed to public access. We are advising our customers to please utilize alternate methods of payment options rather than in person transactions. If a transaction needs to be made in person, YOU MUST call to schedule an appointment at (518)761-8234. Our office will be staffed from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., with appointments being offered (for essential transactions only) from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. If you DO NOT have a scheduled appointment, we WILL NOT be able to assist you!
- There is a silver depository box located outside the entrance to the Town Clerk’s Office. This can be used to submit Dog Renewals/Licenses. Payments must be placed in a sealed envelope with proper documentation (copy of rabies information if needed and renewal/license form.) It would be helpful if contact information is also provided, such as a phone number, in case we have any questions in regards to the transaction.
- At this time, we are NOT ABLE TO ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES! We are hoping to resume appointments the week of April 20th.
- If you need to purchase a Fishing License, please see refer to the information below on how to purchase one directly from the DEC. Our office is currently NOT issuing licenses.
- If you have a Vital Records request (ex. Copies of Births, Deaths, Marriages), please call in advance to confirm that we have it on file in our office. We will then make arrangements to process such request.
Sporting License Expiration Dates
Please note that there has not been any change to the need for a sporting license or has there been an extension of expiration dates on these licenses. While we understand that most agents are not available to perform these transactions, customers can order or renew through our call center or online. When ordering through our call center (1-866-933-2257, M-F, 8:30-4:30), customers will be given their transaction number which they can write down and take with them and use as a license or registration when freshwater or saltwater fishing, respectively. If licenses are ordered online, customers have the option to have a license sent by mail and/or, in the case of fishing licenses and trapping licenses, to print it themselves immediately. Customers still have the option to write down their transaction number for a freshwater fishing license and a marine registry when buying online. http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/fishing.html
Thanks, and we appreciate your cooperation.

For the convenience of our residents there is a drop box located on the front of the Town Office Building at the Town Clerk’s Office entrance. The after hours drop box can be used for taxes, water rents and any materials that need to be at a department the next business day.
The Town of Queensbury encourages employees as well as citizens to report any misuse of taxpayer’s funds or any inefficiencies or illegalities observed. The locked box is located inside the Town Building within the entrance alcove nearest the Town Clerk’s Office. This box is opened monthly in the presence of two department heads.
