Dougherty County commissioners vowed yesterday to fight the proposed closure of a post office in downtown Albany. It has been reported that the closure would cost businesses thousands of dollars.
Additionally, local government is expected to have to spend thousands as well updating letterhead and other official documents with new post office box information.
Commissioners are upset that there was no prior notification given to local officials.
“We feel that we are the leaders in the community. We did not know. And you just jump up and close something this historical, we need to take actions,” Dougherty Co. Commissioner Muarlean Edwards told WALB yesterday.
The post office is slated to be closed on December 2.
