Glade Park residents once again came together Monday night to figure out the future of mail delivery for the area.
Mail delivery was restored to Glade Park on Monday after a sudden disruption a week-and-a-half ago, following a number of contract violations between the Postal Service and the Glade Park Store.
While Glade Park residents would like a contract post office put back into the Glade Park store, many realize that is not a possibility. What residents do want is a full–service post office, however, Grand Junction Postmaster Jim Price says with a price tag of nearly $3M, it simply isn't cost efficient.
One option for a more permanent solution is to have either the community or a private party build a structure to house post office boxes, but price is a concern. Postmaster Price says the cost would have to fall on either the community or a private party.
