Government Services

MayoFLA05062013 (4)Information about the government in Lafayette County Florida and the services they provide. Links to websites to get more information about taxes, licenses, emergency management, property searches, and the courts. Most, if not all, of these services are located in the county seat of Mayo, Florida. If you see that we have forgotten something give us a shout using the CONTACT US form and we will get it posted right away. This informational website will only be as good as the people who share their knowledge with the rest of us! Just because the county is small in comparison to other counties in Florida doesn’t mean that the information you need to know cannot be all in one place and presented in a professional manner.
