How do I get a new address?

Each home and business in Marengo County should have an address. When you move in, the address does not change. If the person you buy or rent from does not know the address, call our business office at 334-295-5287. We may be determine an already established address over the phone if you know your new neighbor's names and addresses, and the correct road name.

If you are moving into a new structure or location, a new address number must be assigned. This requires us to drive to your new location to measure the address along the road. This will take at least 10 working days, so call as far in advance as possible. When you call 334-295-5287, tell us you need an address for a new structure.

1.)  Mark where your driveway will be.
