CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Packets will be distributed to Jefferson County homes notifying county residents of their new 911 addresses, a county official said.
After homeowners receive the packets, postmasters will inform residents when to start using the new addresses, said Jeff Polczynski, director of communications for Jefferson County.
Polczynski said he hopes to have the packets distributed in the first quarter of 2003.
While Polczynski is working on the new addresses, the county also is in the process of designing new street signs.
The county is expected to spend about $250,000 to erect new street signs in the county, the Jefferson County Commissioners said at a meeting last week.
