Postal service selects site for new post office
The U.S. Postal Service has decided that Tonganoxie's new post office should be constructed near the county annex, at Laming Road and Woodfield Drive.
In a letter to Mayor Dave Taylor that was received on Friday, a Denver-based project manager said the postal service chose a site at the southeast corner of Laming and Woodfield, just north of the Leavenworth County Annex.
During the next 30 days, the postal service will accept written objections to the site. The objections must include reasons for the objection, according to Russ Rainey, project manager.
Objections may be mailed to: Vice President Facilities, c/o Keith LaShier, Western FSO manager; Western Facilities Service Office; 160 Inverness Drive West, Suite 400; Englewood, Colo., 80112-5005.
