Reminder: Reentry Sticker Vehicle Windshield Decals are available for Monroe County Residents
By Kristen Livengood, Monroe County Public Information Officer
Hurricane season is here. Monroe County residents are reminded to pick up one reentry sticker for each registered vehicle by providing proof of residency at a Monroe County Tax Collector’s office. Proof of residency includes a Florida Driver’s License or a property bill with a local address, and vehicle registration. For homeowners with a vehicle registered outside of Monroe County, bring your local property tax bill with the out-of-county vehicle registration. A decal is not required for reentry, proof of residency can be provided at the checkpoint; however, stickers make reentry easier if checkpoints are required to ensure safe reentry into the Florida Keys following a destructive storm.
The sticker is color-coded for zone-by-zone reentry. Monroe County reentry stickers are barcoded to verify authenticity. Upper Keys residents including Ocean Reef have a purple decal.
Where to Get Reentry Stickers
Residents from Ocean Reef: Stickers are available at the Monroe County Tax Collector’s office from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. Stickers are also available at Ocean Reef Public Safety, 110 Anchor Dr., Key Largo.
Tax Collector Locations:
• Key Largo – 101487 Overseas Hwy
Stickers are available throughout the year but do not wait until a storm is approaching to pick up a sticker. Stickers will not be available once a state of emergency is declared in Monroe County, which occurs several days before a storm is forecast to strike.
