Addresses must now be posted and easily readable at every Perham home and business.

Citing concerns about resident safety, Perham city leaders enacted a new ordinance on Monday that requires all public and private properties to display their numerical addresses. The addresses must be unobstructed, posted either near the front door of the residence or on the mailbox.


Property owners have 45 days to comply with the new ordinance.
