Postal meeting on Muhlenberg station closure today

Once Muhlenberg Station is closed, customers will have to use Main P.O. or go elsewhere.
The meeting on the Muhlenberg Postal Station's closure is set for today at 5:30 PM at the Main Post Office on Watchung Avenue, according to the public notice posted in the lobby of the station in October.

The possibility of local closures was raised this past summer; you can read my earlier post on the matter here.

Here is a table outlining the schedule and process for hearings and public comment on the three Plainfield area closures --

Muhlenberg Mon 11/21
5:30 PM
Main Post Office 10/25 - 12/26
Netherwood Mon 12/05
5:30 PM
Main Post Office 10/25 - 12/26
North Plainfield Wed 09/21
7:00 PM
East End School 08/30 - 10/31

Address written comments to
Allen Tanko
494 Broad Street
Newark, NJ 07102-9300
(973) 468-7209
North Plainfield residents got themselves organized in advance of their meeting with postal officials and submitted a petition as well as a letter of support from their Congressman, Leonard Lance.

I am not aware any such effort has been undertaken in Plainfield.

Though the Postal Service may hope this is a done deal, that may not be the case as residents have until the day after Christmas to file written comments.
