New Address Law Takes Effect in Midland County

MIDLAND COUNTY - A new law kicks in Saturday for Midland County residents. It requires home addresses to have larger numbers visible from the street.  

That decision came down from County Commissioners after a state law passed in September. They believe this will help people needing emergency services and will provide emergency responders the information they need to locate an incident.

Starting Saturday, deputies will be watching for numbers that are not at least 6 inches tall.
