Mont Belvieu goes Postal

MONT BELVIEU—It’s official, Mont Belvieu now exists. According to the U.S. Postal Service, that is.
This week West Chambers County Chamber of Commerce Chairman of the Board Guido Persiani said that the postal service has agreed to repeated requests for a ZIP code for street addresses within the city.
“The new Zip Code has been approved and will go into effect July 1, 2008,” said Persiani, who is also mayor of Beach City. “The USPS will release information regarding the new Zip Code beginning May 15, 2008 through a mailer to all addresses affected by the change.”
The post service will also post information at the local post offices.
Mont Belvieu’s ZIP code is being kept secret until the official notification date to insure their systems are set up to process the new code properly, he added.
While Mont Belvieu residents can rest a postal box and receive the 77580 ZIP code, street delivery is another matter. Currently those businesses and residents who live on Highway 146 are assigned a Baytown ZIP code. There is no street delivery outside the Baytown ZIP Code.
