Post Office needs your input to provide best quality service

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Hayden-Winkelman-The U.S. Postal Service has established a review process for certain Post Offices known as the POST Plan. The Post Office was among the offices evaluated under the POST Plan criteria.

The Postal Service is now soliciting community input through the enclosed survey to help determine the best course of action for providing postal services to the community.

After receiving the results of this survey, the Postal Service will examine the responses. Unless more than 60 percent of the community supports concluding a discontinuance study for the Post Office and establishing one of the additional sources of services described below, the Postal Service intends to maintain the Post Office with four hours of window service each weekday.

Current Saturday window service hours and access for delivery receptacles will not change as a result of the POST Plan realignment of weekday window service hours.

In addition to this survey, the Postal Service will hold a meeting at Hayden-Winkelman District Auditorium at 824 Thorne Ave, Winkelman on Jan.16 at 6 pm, to answer questions and provide additional information about POST Plan.

At the meeting, local management will share the results of the survey, answer questions, and solicit input regarding the time of day the Post Office will be open.

Although survey results will be known and shared, the Postal Service will not make a final decision regarding this office until after the public meeting. This will enable the Postal Service to obtain all community input and opinions, from both the surveys and the meeting, before making a final decision.

The Postal Service is also seeking locally established businesses or organizations to serve as contractor-operated postal retail units in communities like yours. If you are interested in operating a postal retail unit, please visit the website at http://about.usps.com/news/electronic-press-kits/expandedaccess/welcome.htm for additional information.

Generally, these contractor-operated postal retail units will operate in combination with a community’s Post Office.

However, selection of the third option in the attached survey indicates a preference of your Post Office to be studied for discontinuance with the establishment of a contractor-operated unit as a replacement for the Post Office.

Please return the enclosed survey in the postage-paid envelope provided by Jan. 2, 2013. We kindly request the inclusion of your mailing address so that we can assure that one survey response is submitted per address. Please note that your response may be entered into a publicly accessible record.
