If you don't already have a passport photo when you're ready to come in and apply for your U.S. Passport, don't worry! The Office of the Village Clerk now offers a passport photo service. For a flat fee of $13.00 we will produce passport photos for you at the time of your application. No more running to the local photo center just to take a couple of snapshots only to find out that they don't meet the specification of the U.S. Department of Customs Passport Applications Process. We do it all for you!
