Postal officials begin the relocation of operations from the existing post office into a temporary customer service trailer after the close of business on Saturday, Jan. 25. The temporary trailer is handicapped accessible and located next to the existing post office at 51 Chestnut St.
Regular operations and business hours will remain the same after a brief two-day transition.
On Monday, Jan. 27, the post office boxes will be in the temporary trailer and the retail and customer service operations will still be in the existing post office. On Tuesday, Jan. 28, the retail and customer service operations will open at 9:30 a.m. in the trailer.
Throughout the relocation process, mail delivery will be unaffected. The same letter carriers will be delivering to the same routes in Cold Spring at approximately the same time each day. However, carriers will begin their work day at the Garrison Post Office, approximately five minutes from Cold Spring on Route 9D.
The post office lease at the current location expires Jan. 31. The process of identifying a new permanent site for the Cold Spring post office will include: presentation of the plans by a postal official at a public meeting, advertising the solicitation for a new site, notices soliciting written public comment, and announcements to the media.
