RECORDING FEE CHANGE
Effective December 1, 2017

With the passing of Bill No. 1502 the fee for recording land records will increase to $60.00 for the first page of the document and still remain as $5.00 for each additional page.  Mortgage Electronic Recording documents will remain the same.

§ 665 — DOCUMENT RECORDING FEE
 Increases, from $3 to $10, the recording fee municipalities charge to generate revenue for preserving historic documents
 Currently the municipality retains $1 of each fee for municipal historic document preservation and remits $2 of each fee to the state librarian for state historic document preservation
 The bill doubles each of these amounts and requires municipalities to remit the remaining $4 to the state to be credited to the General Fund

Mission Statement:
The Town Clerk’s Office is information central for Colchester residents when they need questions answered or help finding something within the Town Hall. We provide many services to the community such as notary public, sports & dog licenses, and copies of discharge papers.

The Town Clerk responds to thousands of requests for certificates, permits, licenses, and public documents while also providing services to all boards, commissions and other departments within the building.

We also issue absentee ballots for every election or referenda held in our town.
