Why do I need an address on my mailbox if it’s on my house?

Having a community standard that requires numerals on both sides of the mailbox AND on the building makes it easy for first responders to find your home or business quickly, especially at night. The Village ordinance requires all dwellings and commercial establishments to have the numbers of their address clearly visibly on both sides of their mailbox or post. In addition, the numbers shall be affixed to the front of the building in a location clearly visible from the street. The numbers shall be a contrasting color and a minimum of three inches high (Ordinance 14-30).
