Addressing

Issuing addresses is one of the single most important jobs that we do. Without an accurate and orderly address system it is difficult to find your home or business quickly during an emergency. Addressing questions should be directed to 205-755-0911, if no answer leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible.

You may also submit your address request via our on-line form.

The minimum required information to obtain an address is: Name, Phone Number, Road Name/Number where property is located, nearest neighbor address and whether the property is on the even or odd side of the road. In order for us to locate the property the property must be marked with a small sign where your driveway will be placed.

Additional helpful information you can provide consist of: Lot Number (required in established neighborhoods), Parcel Number and GPS Coordinates. Once you provide this information we will be able to provide you an address within 20 business days. The E911 department is also responsible for maintaining the GIS database for the purpose of county wide addressing. The GIS system is also used to assist deputies and rescue personnel in the location of houses and businesses.
