Actually, Gertie is incorrect. You're not responsible if the address change isthe result of Gov't action. But please, let's not facts get in the way of your baseless complaints!

I can remember over the years when the U.S. Postal Service changed peoples addresses at different times to improve mail delivery. People accepted it with little complaining.

Be less critical of the new address conversion. It will be the last time that your address will change as your address will be unique and not duplicated by sounding similiar with other roads and streets. With every location (address) being numbered every 5.285 feet, Police, fire and other emergency agencies will be able respond in a more accurate and to a precise location, hopefully, quicker. This is a good system established throughout the nation and other counties in West Virginia. I know it works, as I served on a address conversion committee in another WV county several years ago.

And, quit calling 911!!!

Memo to all Barbour County Residents: These actions of the Barbour County Commission are making all of you residents with new addresses into criminals. State Law and the DMV require everyone who's address changes to notify the DMV of your new address. Also, don't forget to sign the backside of your DMV registration card. Failure to do so can also result in a criminal charge; although a misdemeanor as dictated by State Law. Save yourselves the citation fine and court costs.
