COMMISSION ASKS PROPERTY OWNERS TO DISPLAY ADDRESSES PROPERLY
C-T, March 6, 2013
The Livingston County
Commission is concerned about county properties where the house
number is not properly marked for location by emergency
numbers need to be posted on both sides of the mailbox in
three-inch-high reflective numbers. According to Darrell Wright,
with Chillicothe Emergency Services, white-on-black numbering is
the most visible.
the house number should be posted on the structure (house,
machine shed, etc.) in the same three-inch-high reflective
numbers. If the structure is more than 75 feet from the road or
not visible from the road, post the house number at the entrance
to the driveway, where it can be seen from both directions.
Nine-one-one addresses are issued based on the driveway
entrance, so if there is a driveway change on the property,
contact the Sheriff's office for a new address.
be aware that you may request a 911 address for your property
even if there is no structure. For your personal safety when
hunting, farming, etc., it is good to have an address for the
property, and to have it visible at the entrance. If you have
questions about addressing, contact the Sheriff's office at
