Holton Town Board members urge residents to put 911 addresses on their homes
Houses need to have their 911 address on them. That was the word from the Holton Town Board members as the meeting for November got underway. Many homes are not clearly marked, and that could cause a delay if/when rescue would be needed. They are encouraging all residents to make it a priority to get their address in a good place for rescue, should they need help.
