ANNOUNCEMENT: Uniform Addressing Project Continuing in Spring, Summer 2019
The 12 municipalities of Berlin, Bern, Brighton, Halsey, Hamburg, Holton, Hull, Johnson, Rib Falls, Rietbrock, Spencer (town) and Stettin will receive new Uniform Addresses throughout spring and summer 2019. Citizens, business owners, and landowners in those municipalities should continue to use their current address (for driver license renewals, check re-ordering, etc.) until they receive an Official Notice of address change from the County next year. For public safety reasons, new addresses cannot be released to the public before then.
Marathon County’s Uniform Addressing project paused temporarily beginning in November 2018, when snow and frozen ground prohibited the installation of any more street and address signposts. The project resumed in May 2019. As of November 2018, nearly 15,000 new Uniform Addresses had been installed in Marathon County as part of a public safety project to transition to a grid-based, Uniform Addressing System.
Updating or Using Your New Address Online
When your Uniform Address sign is installed, your new address will already have been updated with the national United States Postal Service (USPS) database. Many companies and online businesses access USPS data through a third-party vendor that issues updates on its own schedule. This may cause a delay in your new address being updated or verified by some companies, utilities, or online businesses.
AFTER your new address sign is installed, if you’re doing online banking — or using a credit card for an online purchase or payment — and you have problems with your new address being recognized or accepted, simply use your old address until the company updates its customer address list to match the USPS database.
