Has a lot of money been wasted?

To the Editor:

I recently received a letter from the county commissioners regarding the change to E911 Addressing. I think it's great that Greene County is joining the rest of the country in the 21st Century, but I feel a lot of time and money has been wasted on the process that was used.

It's great that we'll be able to buy things online and not have to go through the explanation that a Rural Route address is not the same as a P.O. Box, and that it is a physical address. It's great that visiting friends and family will be able to type in your address on any Internet mapping program and find your physical location.

It's too bad that someone spent a lot of time naming every road in the county. Did they get paid for this effort? It's too bad that the county is going to have to put up all new road signs for the new road names instead of using the county road number as your address. It's too bad that we, the taxpayers, get to pay for all of these new road signs and the labor to put them up when there are already road signs that have the county road number on them. It's too bad that you won't be able to tell exactly where someone lives in the county by looking at their address. I think that would be much easier for emergency personnel, than relying on a computer or GPS to tell them where to go.
