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 have hosted three of four public information sessions to discuss readdressing as a result of 911 consolidation with Columbia County. The final session is scheduled for May 31 at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church in Riverside at 7 p.m. Information, including the checklist is available at MontourCo.org.
