POST PLAN IMPLEMENTATION RESULTS
FROM A LETTER
DATED AUGUST 14
FROM PHIL VENTURA
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.
