ASHLAND – After closing last November due to safety issues in the facility, the Ashland Post Office at 205 Main Street reopened to the public today, October 26.
“We’d like to thank our Ashland customers for their patience as work was completed on the facility and we look forward to again serving all of your mailing and shipping needs from our newly renovated office,’ said U.S. Postal Service spokesperson Steve Doherty.
In September, Senate President Karen Spilka and State Rep. Jack Patrick Lewis sent a letter to the Congresswoman Katherine Clark and Massachusetts Senators Ed Markey & Elizbaeth Warren seeking a speedy cleanup of the post office and its reopening at on Main Street.
“Ashland’s post office has now been closed for ten months, and there is still no sign of work getting underway for its reopening. This post office is a vital service for the community and for the local economy. The long-term, unplanned closure of this post office has made an already challenging year even more difficult for residents. We urge you, the members of the United States Congressional Delegation from Massachusetts, to lend your support so that much-needed construction work can be started immediately and Ashland’s post office can be reopened as soon as possible,” wrote Senate President Spilka and Rep. Lewis.
