Are you talking about Boston specifically or just using it as an example?...LenS said:Could it be someone in college?
Live in Boston while attending school, Resident where their parents live.
There are many people with two residences as follows:
Works in Boston and owns a condo there, stays there M-F. Lives (and is a legal resident) on Cape Cod where she returns to her family on the weekends (to avoid a miserable commute daily). I know an executive at one of the Boston hospitals who I just described.
I just used Boston as an example, since there are more colleges there than any other city/town in MA.AFCOP said:Are you talking about Boston specifically or just using it as an example?...
Out East , it is more likely that there are 3 ZipCodes per (larger) town than any two towns sharing a ZipCode . Only relevant exception that I can think of is "Chestnut Hill", part of which is really Newton and part of which is Brookline. [That USPO is almost at the town line. I was born there (Brookline side) and had an Uncle who also lived there (Newton side).]Bob_A_Fett said:Last I knew, Civil Service based residency on your ZIP code. Out here in the Boonies there are several smaller towns that have the same ZIP code, so people that live in at least three non-CS towns get resident preference for one CS town. I know that is not the case "Back East", but there may be a case where a ZIP code covers part of two towns. That may account for some of it.
Just my :2c:.
The offical answer to my own question... AHHAAHHAHA unk:Skidaddy said:I don't mean to beat a dead horse here.... So you can move to another town after the list is cert and still claim your old town residency? I just recieved a card from my old town, which i moved from 3 weeks ago and a little nervous. I would break my lease and move back if i had to.
