The steamy temps we had in Marathon County in July and August might almost make you forget the historic snowstorms we endured back in April. But that late snowfall and the lingering frozen ground conditions caused a 3-week delay in the start of Marathon County’s Uniform Addressing project aimed to improve public safety. continued...
ATTENTION: Town of Texas & Town of Wausau Property Owners
The Uniform Addressing Official Notice that property owners in the Town of Texas & Town of Wausau recently received MAY BE INCORRECT.
Many notices mistakenly listed the wrong address needing to be changed. To correct the issue, the Marathon County Conservation, Planning, & Zoning Department is re-printing and re-sending ALL notices for both the Town of Texas and the Town of Wausau in July.
Property owners in the Town of Texas and the Town of Wausau should:
1. DISCARD the bright-white Uniform Addressing Official Notice they recently received.
2. USE THE NEW, CREAM-COLORED OFFICIAL NOTICE dated July 13, 2018, instead.
We apologize for any confusion.
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.
