The Freedom of Information Law provides rights of access to records reflective of governmental decisions and policies that affect the lives of every New Yorker. However an agency does not have to create a new document in order to provide the individual the requested information.
A Records Access application is filled out by the individual requesting the information. If possible you should supply dates, titles, file designations, or any other information that will help find requested records.
Within 5 business days of the receipt of a written request for a record reasonably described, the agency must furnish a written acknowledgement of receipt of the request. Within 20 business days the agency must make the record available, deny access in writing giving the reasons for denial, or provide a statement of the approximate date when the request will be granted or denied.

A fee for copying other records may be charged based upon the actual cost of reproduction.

- Vital records registration started in the Town of New Baltimore for Births in 1901, Deaths in 1903 and Marriages in 1903. Generally, the Town of New Baltimore provides uncertified copies of the following types of records for genealogy research purposes
Birth certificates - if on file for at least 75 years and the person whose name is on the birth certificate is known to be deceased.
Death certificates - if on file for at least 50 years.
Marriage certificates - if on file for at least 50 years and both spouses are known to be deceased.
- Dog License All dogs over four months in age and any dog that is off the owner's premises regardless of age in New York State must be licensed (N.Y.S. Department of Agriculture and Markets Law). New dogs over 4 months need to be licensed within thirty days of obtaining the dog. To obtain a license, bring or mail a current rabies vaccination and (if applicable) a neutering / spaying certificate to the Town Clerk's office. A license obtained in the Town of New Baltimore must be renewed once each year, due the same month that it was originally obtained. Licenses (with few exceptions) must be on the dog at all times. Not only is this the law, but it is the best way we can find the owner of a lost dog.
