During a visit there just one week ago, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer announced he was joining the effort to secure a zip code for the town of Halfmoon, and began pushing the  U.S. Postal Service to agree to a Zip Code Boundary Review Process.

"Halfmoon is one of the fastest growing towns in Saratoga County, not only in terms of population, but also in terms of commercial activity, and the lack of a unique ZIP code is holding the town back."

Word comes from Schumer today that the USPS has agreed to undertake a Zip Code Boundary Review. The town currently shares the ZIP codes of four neighboring towns.
