ORONO – Town officials remind residents they need to have their house numbers posted on their homes if they don’t already.

Part of the duties of the Coded Enforcement Office is the administration of the E-911 Addressing System. Travelling around town, staff has noticed that many properties that do not have house numbers posted. Both town ordinances and the State’s E-911 System require that numbers be posted on the house if it is located within 50 feet of the street, or on a post (or mailbox) if the house is more than 50 feet from the road. The numbers must be a minimum of four inches high and be of a color that contrasts well with the background.

For your safety, town staff asks that you make sure your property address numbers are posted and are in good condition.
