The Borough Clerk’s office has three notaries on staff. Our office only notarizes documents for borough residents. A notary is a witness to a signature. The person whose signature is being notarized must be present with identification. Our staff only handles simple notaries. We do not notarize documents which require a witness and/or witnessess to be provided in addition to the notary. Please take any paperwork requiring a complex notary to an attorney.
