A public meeting is being held this afternoon about the Redding Center Post Office. Certain post offices have been subject to review, including the Redding Center Post Office.
The United States Postal Service sent out a survey to residents, presenting them with four alternatives to closing the post office. Three alternatives start with conducting a discontinuance study.
One alternative is to then close the office and provide PO Box service through another facility. Another alternative is to find an alternative location, usualy a local business, to be operated by a contractor. The third alternative is to then provide mailbox delivery through a rural carrier, with other postal service obtained at another location.
The fourth alternative is to keep the Lonetown Road facility open but with new weekday service hours based on workload. Saturday service would not change.
The community meeting is at 1pm at town hall.
