Would that be Hugh Ward and Spillway?

Brooke said...

that area is stil considered Brandon by the post office so that's why it said Brandon. And yes, it's just past Hugh Ward before you get to Polk's.

You mean that area known as the Reservoir? Just because the post office says Brandon is NOT Brandon. Besides, the post office you refer to is in Flowood. PLEASE do not tell me you are in Brandon when you are at the Reservoir, stupid me, I would go to Brandon to find you.

Get a grip! The post office at Grant Ferry is BRANDON and not Flowood. The new Fred's on Spillway Rd is definitely in Brandon. There are two parts of the reservoir spillway: Brandon & Ridgeland.

Looks like your grip is slipping. Get the grease out of your gripper. The post office at Lakeland Dr. at Grants Ferry Rd. is located in Flowood. The ONLY post office in Brandon is on Hwy. 80 near I-20. The Fred's on Spillway Rd. is no more in Brandon than Spillway Rd. is in Hinds County. It's people like you that continue to confuse new citizens to that part of Rankin County.

The Rez folks on the Madison County side of the lake
continue to be amused at this internal Rankin County disagreement about exactly where the various
City limits,overlay districts,HOA's ect.
... actually begin and end.

We offer this deal :

Madison County will provide ( free of charge ) unlimited survey crews, engineers, ect. to
Rankin County, ... provided that Rankin County
( in return ) agrees to accept that "Harbor Walk and
the Hotel Valencia " will now eventually be built upon the Rankin County side of the Lake.

The post office at Grants Ferry Road has a Brandon address.

PLeez - anyone who does not believe that the Grants Ferry Post Office is in BRANDON - just simply drive by and look at the zip code on the building - 39047!!!!! It doesn't get any more Brandon than that people. GIVE IT UP ALREADY!

The Post Office is in the city of Flowood but their address is Brandon. The majority of the area they serve is outside of the Flowood city limits so they did not change their address when the area was annexed by Flowood.

The post office has a Brandon address because it is located in Brandon. Is it located in the city limits of Brandon, NO! Howver, it is in Brandon. The Flowood post office is located on Airport Road.

Mr. Pleez....when you are driving up to see the zip code, call for police help and see who shows up, Brandon or Flowood. It does not get any more Flowood than that. Now, MOVE ON !!!!!!
I recently talked with a customer service guy at the Grants Ferry post office. He said this mess is getting confussing and old. People get notified of a package in Brandon, so the go to the Brandon post office where they are told to go to Flowood, so they go to the post office on Airport Rd. Finally, they go to the post office at Grants Ferry.

I say again, this Rankin County debate provides
much amusement to those of us that live on the Madison County side of the Rez.

Our offer still stands. In addition, we will also
include ( free of charge of course) , our many
Landscape Architects.

Madison and Ridgeland might feud with each other.
but they both agree on their respective boundaries and Post Offices.
