Frontier Communications will hold a listening session on Friday, December 20th, 2019. This will be hosted by Senator Baldwin and Representative Kind at the Marten Center to hear public input regarding their phone service concerns. Time: 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The anticipated completion date of November 15th for the addressing project has not been achieved due to setbacks the sign installation contractor has experienced. Signs continue to be installed with a hoped completion date of mid-December, weather permitting. Please do not remove the old address signs prior to a new sign being installed.
Buffalo County is working closely with emergency services. E911 is entering both old and new addresses in their emergency response database. Residents may be requested to provide both addresses if calling for emergency service until the project is completed. First Responders and Fire Departments have been provided maps that have both the “old” and “new” roads names.
It has been reported that some new signs have been moved by land owners to locations that are not appropriate or conducive to locating properties by emergency responders. We ask that if you have moved signs, to locations where they are no longer readily visible from both road directions and where they are no longer perpendicular to the road, to return those signs to their appropriate locations. The goal is to assure as best as possible the safety and wellbeing of all Buffalo County residents and visitors.
Your cooperation and understanding is most appreciated.
