The U.S. Post Office has graciously agreed to allow residents of our village to once again opt for having our own Crestwood zipcode. The post office will be mailing surveys out to everyone beginning on April 15th and those surveys must be completed and returned by April 30th. Every resident and business owner in Crestwood is eligible to fill out the survey and everyone should.
I want to remind you that every resident and business in Crestwood could gain significantly by having a zip code of our own. Crestwood does not charge tax for many things like cell phone services but because we use the same zip code as Midlothian – who does charge these taxes, our cell carriers automatically charge those taxes on our bills. Our own zip code will mean significant savings to everyone in our Village and will eliminate the confusion we all experience when filling out forms online that automatically default to “Midlothian” when we enter our current zip code.
We will hold a Town Hall meeting to discuss our own zip code and answer any questions you may have on April 20th at 7:00 pm at the Crestwood Civic Center, 14025 South Kostner Avenue in Crestwood. We also welcome your calls to our Village Hall with any questions you may have regarding the zip code survey. We are looking for volunteers to go door to door in our Village to alert every resident and business of the importance of filling out the survey and posting it. Please contact the Village Hall and sign up to volunteer!
Remember, that if you are a renter in our Village, you are still eligible to complete a survey and mail it back to the post office. Please don’t throw your survey away! Having our own zip code is something most everyone in our Village has sought for many years so please, complete the survey and return it to the post office. No stamp is necessary!
