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

Holidays and Business Promotions

MayoFL05172015 (4)Holidays and Business Promotions for some of our local small businesses. We hope everyone will spend some time in our local businesses during the holiday seasons. Anything from shopping at our local grocery store, eating out in one of the restaurants and buying some trinkets for your loved ones from one of our shops. We would also like our of our friends and family to promote these businesses that have an online presence and/or social media account page that we can “like”, “share”, and “follow” in the coming year. We have noticed that quite a few of the Mayo small businesses have been posting more on their social media pages, updating their websites with a new look and some have even gotten new social media pages and/or websites.

Fall Season Getting You Down

MayoFL05172015 (28)Fall season getting you down? Over the last several months we have all been hoping for a little cooler weather, a cessation of the bugs and time from our many chores to have a little fun. Now if only the weather would cool off enjoy for us to enjoy it. We may be inviting the bad weather by asking for cooler temperatures but we really could use it right about now.

The holidays are coming, people are traveling more, visiting their family and just trying to get out more. So, please be careful out there when you on the road. Hopefully, everyone’s harvests have gone well and the fall crops should be getting ready for picking if they haven’t been already. The kids have been enjoying school, we hope, participating in their chosen sports and learning new things. But we all need a little break every now and then. If you were able to attend the Pioneer Festival last month we hope you have a great time, took lots of pictures and are willing to share your experiences. Drop us a line using our Contact Us form.
