Postal Officials Address Relocation

United States Postal Officials Monday night addressed a proposal to relocate the Dunwoody Branch from Dunwoody Village to its postal carrier annex complex on Shallowford Rd. near I-285. USPS real estate specialist David Ashley said no decision has been made, but it wasn't hard to read between the lines. Ashley said the Postal Service lost $2.8 billion in 2008 and $2.3 billion through the first half of this year and is looking hard at all possible cost-cutting measures. The move to the carrier annex would not only allow the Postal Service to consolidate buildings, but to sell the Dunwoody Village property, which it owns outright. The meeting, which took place in the Dunwoody City Council chambers, attracted a near standing room gathering.
