The Department is frequently reviewing Bulloch County for any addressing errors. As errors are found, efforts are made to correct them as quickly as possible to avoid any confusion when sending emergency responders or delivering parcels of mail to your residence. If you receive a change of address notice, you have 30 days to post the new number on the structure in question. You then have up to 1 year to change over all of your mail (e.g., bills, voter’s registration, utilities, subscriptions, etc.). After the year is up, the old address will be removed from the system.
Residential structures must use a minimum of 3-inch numbers and Commercial / Business / Retail must use a minimum of 4-inch numbers. Address numbers must contrast with their background and be clearly visible from the road during the day and at night. If the structure in question is not clearly visible from the road, the numbers must be posted by the road and on the structure.
