Lee County Board of County Commissioners, Lee County Municipalities, and the Lee County Tax Collector have worked together to revise the existing county ordinance for taxicabs and vehicles for hire.

The revised ordinance, effective August 1, 2015, requires each business owner who operates a taxicab or vehicle for hire business in Lee County to obtain a Certificate to Operate, a vehicle permit, and two stickers for each vehicle. All drivers are required to obtain a driver identification card.

Each year, certificates, vehicle permits, vehicle permit stickers, and driver identification cards will be issued exclusively from the Lee County Tax Collector’s main office. This process will replace the requirements of each of the municipalities within Lee County, subject to each municipality adopting Lee County Ordinance 15-05.
