Code Enforcement Officers to enforce Structure Numbering Ordinance

City Ordinance 5-1-12 - Structure numbering - requires every business and residence to have their address numbers posted on both the structure, building or residence and at the driveway. These numbers must 3 inches in height and also must be visible from the road. This helps emergency responders more easily identify your address when needed. Please make sure you are in compliance with this ordinance as Code Enforcement Officers will begin to check for this starting in March. Please contact City Hall at 552-2525 for additional information.
