Uniform Addressing project to continue in Spring 2019
Marathon County’s Uniform Addressing project will pause temporarily beginning in November 2018, when snow and frozen ground will prohibit the installation of any more street and address signposts.
The eight municipalities of Berlin, Bern, Halsey, Hamburg, Johnson, Rib Falls, Rietbrock, and Stettin will receive new Uniform Addresses beginning in May 2019, when the countywide re-addressing project is scheduled to resume. Until then, 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 later next year. For public safety reasons, new addresses cannot be released before then.
It is not yet known if the towns of Brighton, Holton, Hull, and Spencer can be completed before the project is suspended due to weather. County staff will make further announcements when they can determine the best and safest place to stop for the winter.
Come November, nearly 15,000 new Uniform Addresses will have been installed in Marathon County as part of a public safety project to transition to a grid-based, Uniform Addressing System.
