PUBLIC NOTICE

POST PLAN IMPLEMENTATION RESULTS

FROM A LETTER

DATED AUGUST 14

FROM PHIL VENTURA

POSTPLAN COORDINATOR

The Postal Service has concluded the POST Plan review process for the Charlestown PO. Customer survey responses, input from the community meeting and the operational needs of the Postal Service were considered in

reaching the implementation decision.  It has been determined that the Post Office will provide 4 hours of window service each weekday. Current Saturday window service hours will not be reduced and access to delivery

receptacles will not be changed as a result of the POST plan realignment of weekday window service hours.  The Post Service will announce the date of implementation and the

operation hours of the office at a later date to allow for the completion of the administrative tasks associated

with the implementation.
