Town Seal of Pelham, NY

Pelham is the oldest town in Westchester County. Thomas Pell signed a treaty in 1654 with the Siwanoy Indians to buy what is not only the Town of Pelham but is all of the Bronx, and the land along Long Island Sound, north to the Rye border.  The State Legislature incorporated the Town of Pelham on March 7, 1788, and at that time included all of City Island and what is now Pelham Bay Park east of the Hutchinson River. In 1895, the Town of Pelham was reduced to its current area. Two Villages were incorporated within the Town, the Village of Pelham Manor in 1891, and  the Village of Pelham, in 1896.

Town Clerk Declares Saturday Office Hours "A Success!"

Extends Pilot Program Through Year-End
   

Pelham Town Clerk Michael Recca's Saturday office hours continue to provide a useful alternative to normal business week hours for many busy Town residents.
"I am pleased to announce that Saturday office hours will continue on a monthly basis through the end of the year," Recca said today.  "The results of the July and August Saturday hours demonstrate a demand for this service which I am pleased to provide at no cost to the Town."

   On August 12th, in just four morning hours, Recca issued two marriage certificates, two sets of certified marriage transcripts, two fishing licenses, and one dog license.  

Recca set Saturday, September 16, from 8AM to 12 Noon, as the next Saturday office hours for the Town Clerk's office.  
  As with the two previous Saturdays, appointments are recommended and will be issued on a first come, first serve basis. To schedule an appointment, you can send an email to TOPtownclerk@aol.com or call 914-738-0777.

  The Town Clerk's office issues marriage, fishing and dog licenses, parking permits for the disabled, sells E-Zpass tags, updates voter registration information and provides access to Town records.  

(Please note:  Village of Pelham Manor residents must obtain dog licenses and disabled parking permits from their Village clerk.)
