New addresses coming for annexed part of city


Some streets in Electric City will be receiving new names and numbers as a result of an ordinance passed last week by the Electric City council.

The new names and numbering are being assigned to those properties that were taken in at the city’s latest annexation.

The city has been working with the property owners affected in an effort to make the changeover without a hitch. A few of the property owners attended the last council meeting and seemed satisfied with the explanations given by Deputy Clerk Russell Powers.

The numbering changes will make the newly-annexed properties consistent with the rest of the city. Prior to the annexation, the properties had numbering and street names from Grant County.

The ordinance spells out the obligations of homeowners to place numbers on their property to assist emergency personnel to know where to go in emergencies.
