If you require a Commissioner of Oath to sign a document(s), please contact the municipal office to schedule an appointment for this service. A Commissioner of Oath is different from a Notary Public; it is your responsibility to know what is required for your document(s). The duty of a Commissioner of Oath is to witness your signature, so be sure that you DO NOT sign the document before the Commissioner of Oath requests you to do so in their presence. You will be required to show photo identification and pay a fee for this service. Failure to meet these requirements will mean that the Commissioner of Oath will NOT sign your document(s). To schedule an appointment, please call the municipal office at (705)386-2573.
