USPS meeting for Martinsburg’s hours

Posted on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 12:08 pm

The Postal Service has established a review process for certain Post Offices, including a customer survey mailed to customers, known as the POST Plan. The Martinsburg Post Office was among the offices evaluated under the POST Plan criteria.
After receiving the results of this survey, the Postal Service will examine the responses and unless the community has a strong preference (more than 60 percent) for conducting a discontinuance study for the Martinsburg Post Office and establishing one of the additional sources of services described below, the Postal Service intends to maintain the Martinsburg Post Office with four hours of window service each weekday. Current Saturday window service hours and access to delivery receptacles will not change as a result of the POST Plan.
In addition to the survey, the Postal Service will hold a meeting at the Martinsburg Library Community Room, 201 E Washington St., Martinsburg, on March 25 at 3 p.m. to answer questions and provide additional information about the 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.
The Postal Service is also seeking locally established businesses or organizations to serve as contractor-operated postal retail units  in the community to operate in combination with the local Post Office.
