Street Addresses

The Engineering Division coordinates the assignment of house identification numbers and acts as liaison with the telephone company to insure that correct building addresses are included in the database for the E-911 Emergency Response System.

Engineering also researches proposed new street names to assure the name being proposed for a new road is sufficiently unique to avoid confusion with existing street names.

In addition, a continuous updating of the address database is required to accommodate inclusion of new land subdivisions and new construction.

This vital service is required to permit instant identification of all property addresses and a rapid response by the police and fire departments to the physical locations of the telephones used to call 911.
