We assign and maintain all the 911 address information for Mayes County. Each town or city is responsible for all addressing inside these areas.
If you are building a new house inside Mayes County, but outside of a city limit, you will need to contact our addressing department and receive a 911 address before you are able to receive utilities to the property.
The process of getting a 911 address usually takes 2-3 business days after receiving your information. Information you should have available to expedite this service include:
The 911 address of your closest neighbor.The road number that runs in front of your driveway (the road your primary drive connects to).
You must mark your driveway location with a flag or marker before we can assign the new address.
You will need this 911 address even if you plan to use a Post Office Box for mail delivery.
The most important purpose in having a 911 address is for locating your home in case of an emergency. You must place your address at the end of your driveway near the road. If your address isn't posted for emergency responders, they may not be able to find your home in an emergency. It is also the law. Mayes County residents are required by law to post their 911 addresses near the end of the driveway. For more information about this, please call the 911 Director.
