A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by state government to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.

A Notary’s duty is to screen the signers of important documents - such as property deeds, wills, and powers of attorney - for their true identity.

The Village of Westmont offers the Notary Public service of witnessing signatures free of charge.
