News From Our Email

We have been receiving emails from various people over the last several months and we have finally gotten to the point where we are catching up with our correspondence. Other than questions about property, which should be directed to the Government Services pages for more information, we are posting a few of them below. Perhaps you may find the information interesting, helpful or you may even be able to help them with their inquiry.

Robin Pletzer
​​​​Good ​morning, My name is Robin and I work with the nonprofit Vehicles For Veterans. We are a car donation and recycling program that benefits programs for veterans. I was on ​your website and I was wondering if you would be willing to add our link. Many community websites have found us to be a great resource to include because we are a free service that accepts unwanted vehicles for recycling anywhere in ​Florida. Below is a link to our page if you would like to learn more about Vehicles For Veterans, or you can also email me with any questions. Thank you for your consideration! Robin Pletzer

According to their website:
You have NO costs.
Free pick-up, running or not.
We take care of all the additional paperwork.
We issue you with an IRS tax receipt for your records.
We’ll pick up your donation when it’s most convenient.
We take cars, boats, RVs, Campers and ATV’s.

Does the city of Mayo have a Town Clerk and if so what is their email? Thank you, Shannon

If anyone can help Shannon with this information please let us know.

Jeff Stern
Hello, my name is Jeff Stern. I am a skatepark developer at Spohn Ranch Skateparks. It’s been a few years since Spohn Ranch Skateparks has been in communication with Mayo regarding a skatepark development. I wanted to reach out to see if developing a new skatepark has been discussed recently, or if you are planning on developing a new skatepark in the future. Any insight you can share is greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any questions, or need any information. I am happy to assist with fundraising advice, site analysis, concept designs, cost analysis, etc… Look forward to your reply, Jeff Stern

Always thought Mayo could use a nice skatepark. If you think this might be of interest to the residents maybe someone could propose it to the next county board meeting!

My name is Mia and I am emailing you on behalf of Senior Guidance (, an organization dedicated to providing helpful senior living resources for the elderly. We have a dedicated section that provides extremely well detailed and thorough information on Florida assisted living: Our website discusses all services available for seniors living in Florida, outlines helpful state programs for seniors and allows to find assisted living facilities in every city in Florida. We would like to ask you to be added as one of the helpful resources on your page: Our website would be of tremendous value to your visitors. Thank you in advance. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know. Sincerely, Mia

Here is a direct link to what they have listed in Mayo, Florida

FYI: We have added a Support Local Artists page with a listing of some of the local crafters, musicians and writers from Mayo, Florida. Check it out!

We will keep updating our Calendar of Events page so please keep checking that as well.

Lafayette County Services

Lafayette County Florida Government Services are mostly all handled in person. That means you really need to come down to the courthouse building in Mayo, Florida to find out where you can get the information you need. They do very little over the internet including emails. Some questions may be answered over the phone and some forms can be mailed out and returned but most things will need to be handled in person. We have gotten quite a few inquiries about properties, liens and even curbside garbage collection. We cannot answer those questions here. We have gathered as much information as we can and have posted it on our Government Services information page:
