Revisions to county's addressing ordinance approved by officials

BENTON -- Scott County officials are putting the word out: properly displayed addresses are important.

Commissioners approved revisions to the county's addressing ordinance during their Tuesday meeting.

Presiding Commissioner Jamie Burger said the revisions were needed to reflect some changes recommended by Joel Evans, emergency management director for the county.

In the ordinance's section regarding the street naming system, a provision was added requiring any road 1,000 feet or longer with a structure on it to be named regardless of whether it is a public or private road.

This new provision is in addition to the policy that was already in place which requires a name for roads of any length, private or public, that have three or more structures.
