Residences and businesses that will be impacted by Montour County’s readdressing will begin receiving information in the mail this month. The first of three mailings will be a checklist which will include updating driver’s license and vehicle registration information. Pending final approval by the Postal Service, address change information will be mailed and are scheduled to take effect in June. The Post Office will continue to deliver to the old addresses for one year. Any location that does not receive a notification in the mail by mid-July and would like to confirm address information should contact the Columbia Montour GIS office at 570-387-4930. Montour County intends to begin using new addresses for 911 dispatch on August 1, so it will be important to have the updated information by then.
The Montour County Commissioners hosted the first of four public information sessions last Wednesday to discuss readdressing as a result of 911 consolidation with Columbia County. Three more sessions are scheduled. The next is Wednesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. at the Anthony Township Municipal Building, followed by May 25 at First Baptist Church of Danville and May 31 at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church in Riverside. Information, including the checklist and schedule of future meetings, is available at MontourCo.org.
