Town Clerk / Receiver of Taxes

The Town Clerk serves as secretary to the Town Board and as keeper of all town records. As evidence of the essential nature of these functions in town government, the position of Town Clerk was specifically mandated by the New York State Constitution of 1777. In Amherst, therefore, the history of the office dates from 1819 and the initial organization of the town. Throughout most of the nineteenth century the Town Clerk was elected each year at the annual town meeting and together with the Supervisor and the four Justices of the Peace was an active, voting member of the Town Board.

The Tax Receiver’s office and Town Clerk’s office were consolidated as of January 1, 1998.

The listing below represents Town of Amherst Town Clerk / Reciver of Taxes dating from 1819 to present. The listings were provided by the Amherst Town Clerk's Office. Any errors or ommissions should be reported to David J. Willer in the Office of Information Technology.
