One listener is, unfortunately, not unique. I’m Amy E. Feldman.
A listener has been living at his home address, where he’s paid taxes for years. But inexplicably, his township later assigned a business a mile away from his home the same address. Packages are misdelivered, mail is snarled—and he is frustrated. He wants to know what can be done. While the postal service does not assign addresses, it can intervene by contacting the township. Although in the listener’s case, the postal service already tried—to no avail.
The bigger issue that the listener didn’t raise in the question is what happens if he calls 911? Where would first responders be sent? He might want to start by contacting the township’s emergency management department to ask about the 911 database to check to see how his house and the business are represented. And then ask them if they have suggestions to alleviate both safety and annoyance concerns for having the same address.
