Level Plains Mayor lobbies for his town to get its own zip code

Local News

Level Plains, Ala (WDHN)—For nearly a decade, the city of Level Plains has lobbied the halls of Washington to get its own identity.

Currently, some level plains residents have Enterprise zip codes and some have Daleville ones. Over recent years, the
city has been dialoguing with the U.S. Postal Service about obtaining its own zip code. Splitting its mailing addresses causes
both Level Plains and Dale County to lose tax revenue.

Level Plains business owners say it would be beneficial for their city to have its own zip. Previously, the city had been asked to provide
A list of all addresses in the designated area, to include street names, addresses, and block ranges as part of the postal service’s
Review process.

Local business owner Chad Steverson says “As a local business here in level plains anytime it comes to establishing ourselves on the map, we either use Enterprise or
Daleville’s zip code I think it would be very beneficial to have our own zip code.”

Mayor Thompson says he’s spoken to Congressman-elect Barry Moore, who says he’ll personally lobby the U.S. Postal Service
to help get Level Plains its own identity with a zip code.
