Summit County Community Notes: 9-22-2012

Beginning Sept. 30, any parcels that come strictly to your street address will be returned to the sender. The postal service is now delivering some parcels from UPS and FedEX. It is more important now than ever that when you order something, you give your PO Box number as part of the address. If the company you are ordering from will not accept your PO address, give them your address as follows:

Your street address POB+ your box #

Frisco/Copper Mountain, CO 80443

Example: If my street address is 708 Comanche St and my PO Box is 613, I would give them:

708 Comanche St POB 613

Frisco/Copper Mountain, CO 80443

Thank you for adding POB. This simple addition to your address will ensure that you get what you order. Sincerely,

Frisco/Copper Mountain Post Office staff

There are multiple choice questions, as well as ones open for written response. “It’s our responsibility to make sure we are serving our audience,” said Maggie Butler, Summit Daily marketing and projects director.
