Minot officials ask for street addresses to be visible

(Minot, ND)  --  Officials in Ward County want to improve the response time of their first responders.  They are asking home and business owners to clearly display their addresses so they are visible from the street.  There are times police and fire are slowed because they are having trouble finding the business or house number.  

Officials say electronic mapping isn't perfect so having a visible address will save time and perhaps lives.
