Joined with Local Community in Opposing USPS Proposed Closure
July 22, 2011
CHARLOTTE HALL, MD – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5) today announced that the United State Postal Service (USPS) has notified him it has decided against closing the Charlotte Hall Post Office.
“I am pleased that the U.S. Postal Service has decided against closing the Charlotte Hall Post Office which has served this community since 1797,” said Rep. Hoyer. “This, the third oldest post office in St. Mary’s County, is a cornerstone of the community and provides an important service to residents and businesses in this growing and vibrant area.”
Congressman Hoyer was contacted by those served by the Charlotte Hall facility in June after letters went out to area residents notifying them of the possibility of the post office’s closure. He immediately notified USPS of the community’s concerns about the closure and the USPS proposal to move postal operations to the Hughesville Post Office.
