Just wondering why Union County has put up 911 markers at everyone citizens road and mail box in Union County and Towns County is not offering this service. When you go to Union County check out the markers. It sounds like they have the best interest of the people. Would this be the commissioners office needing to put this very vital and important plan into action?

We are in an economic crisis and you want the county to spend money doing something that each of us can do ourselves - this is why we are in this mess in the first place.

Yes, everyone in the county are getting new addreses. These markers are being placed at every location to that 911/law enforcement can find homes easier. It's a good thing, but everyone is going to have to change their home address. That's a little agravating, but worth it if it makes it easier.

When the original 911 addresses were assigned the was no systematic approach as to what would determine which end of the road would be the beginning of the numbers for that road. This was especially confusing for roads that connected between two other roads.

For example, if you take Trackrock Gap from Hwy-76, do addresses increase or decrease. Although it has not been explained what the new determinor is, supposedly it's a bit more logical.

You are funny!!!! Hopefully you were joking!!! This is for the sole purpose of saving lives, making it easier for the EMT's to find people's homes. I do remember back several years ago, that an ambulance could not find the home. Get a LIFE!!!!

Who got our county in an economic crisis??? Is Union County not in one???? Sorry I posted this, I just found it very impressive when I was traveling to Union county the other day and noticed the signs that the COUNTY put up, you know alot of homebuyers with busy lives forget to put there numbers up. Again sorry....

Another reason for the re-addressing is that some folks took their address (or were assigned) from the road they fronted, not the road that their driveway accessed. Obviously, this was confusing.

do you have a gps. If you did you would realize that in north gorth east georgia there are alot of roads not marked on gps systems. Making the ems and police use this method might cause them not to make it to you.
