If this is a “911” address, why does it have to change my mailing address?
If you use a P.O. box, you will not have to change your mailing address; however, you need to know your correct physical address.
Charged with the goal of being the safest, healthiest, and most prosperous county in Wisconsin, the Marathon County Board voted in 2016 to implement a county-wide Uniform Addressing System to improve public safety by eliminating:
- Duplicate addresses
- Roads with the same or similar names
- Numbering that is not sequential
- Odd and even numbers on the same side of the road
The goal of Uniform Addressing is to help emergency services in Marathon County provide the RIGHT SERVICE to the RIGHT PLACE at the RIGHT TIME.
