Birth, Death, and Marriage Records

We maintain custody of all birth, marriage, and death records dating back to the late 1800s while following Massachusetts General Laws regulating these documents. Each year, we register almost 2,000 new entries.

Business Certificates

A business certificate is simply a statement that one or more persons (or a corporation) is conducting a business under a name other than their own.  It does not grant any type of license to operate the business, nor does it permit the legal use of the address provided. 

Any individual conducting business under any title other than the complete real name of the owner, whether individually or as a partnership.  Inc., Corp., Ltd., LLC may only be used by a corporation, however, any corporation doing business in a name other than the corporate officer must file the corporate name.  Upon discontinuing, retiring or withdrawing from such business or partnership, or in the case of a change of residence of such person or of the location where the business is conducted such a change must be filed with the City Clerk.  A business certificate is in force and in effect for four (4) years from the date of issue.  A new filing must be made every four years as long as the business is conducted.  Violations of these provisions shall be subject to a fine of not more than three hundred dollars ($300.) for each month during which such violation continues.

Dog Licenses

In accordance with the provisions of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 140, Section 137 the owner of any dog over the age of 6 months shall obtain a license for the dog.  The City Clerk shall not grant a license for a dog unless the owner of the dog provides proof that the dog is currently vaccinated for rabies, or provides proof that the dog is exempt from receiving a rabies vaccination in accordance with MGL, Chapter 140, Section 145B.

Your dog must be licensed in order to use the West Revere Dog Park.
