The era of the post-office-in-a-trailer in Cold Spring may be ending soon. Construction is on track for the U.S. Postal Service to relocate its retail counter early next year from its trailer next to Foodtown to the Butterfield redevelopment across the street, said postal service spokesperson George Flood.

The post office will be located at the rear of the Lahey Pavilion. The new county senior center, also in Lahey, should open a few months after the post office, said Putnam County Legislator Barbara Scuccimarra. She said the former medical offices there have been demolished but that bids for the new construction came in higher than expected and so will be rebid.
