Village Clerk

Clerk’s Office


Welcome to the village clerk’s area of the village’s website. To give you a quick history, know that the village clerk is the official record keeper, the librarian for the village.
My duties follow state statute and village ordinance. The village clerk attends board and committee meetings, publishes resolutions and ordinances and serves as the custodian of all village documents not held by another village officer. I am also the village’s local elections official.

Services provided by the Village Clerk’s Office include voter registration, absentee voting information, passport applications, medical identification bracelets, freedom of information requests, Cook County Animal Shots, Dog License forms, Summer Youth Employment, Vehicle Stickers, Jesse White Mobile Services, Final Water Readings and general information. The Clerk’s Office staff also works closely with the Cook County Elections Department to facilitate voting for all elections.
Take a look around the Clerk’s Office area and if you don’t find what you’re looking for, give our office a call at (708) 862-9150.
