After contacting Mr. Rick Eckert (City Manager) by email on Jan. 25, the following update was provided from Ms. Pam Conner (Community Development Department.)
The city of Powder Springs received a letter (see attached letter) from the U.S. Postal Service dated Oct. 18 2011, addressed to Mayor Pat Vaughn. Mayor Vaughn passed the U.S. Postal Service letter on to staff (Ms. Pam Conners) to work the zip code issue.
Ms. Conner stated in her email response to Mr. Eckert that she had been working with Cobb County for some time to obtain the requested information from the U.S. Postal Service, and that her department had all of the required documents the city needed assembled and at the ready (see attached map).
Ms. Conner was awaiting the arrival of an Excel spreadsheet that day from Cobb County, and once this information was received, she would be forwarding the requested information to the U.S. Postal Service contact, Mr. Tim Taylor.
Ms. Conner also provided a document which ran in the Messenger newspaper, a paper that is not delivered to those Powder Springs residents who reside in the 30141 ZIP code area because the U.S. Postal Service only delivers the newspaper to residents in the 30127 zip code. This further details the ZIP code confusion and the steps the city of Powder Springs has and will take to resolve the issue with the U.S. Postal Service (see attached document).
