2 post offices may be moved

The Rohrersville and Maugansville Post Offices may be renovated, expanded or moved, U.S. Postal Service real estate specialist John Turpin said Wednesday.

The Washington County Commissioners and the United States Postal Service will hold two public meetings this month about those possibilities, which are a response to growth in the areas.

The goal of the meetings is to get comments from residents about the need for better facilities and to help determine if post offices should be renovated and expanded or if new buildings should be built, Turpin said.

U.S. Postal Service officials will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.

Postal officials are required to look at expansion and, if that is not a realistic option, to consider buying property for a new post office building, Turpin said. They may find at the meetings that residents have suggestions about what property they should consider purchasing, he said.

No decisions have been made, he said.

Both post offices are in small rented buildings, he said.

The Rohrersville meeting is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the Boonsboro Volunteer Fire/Rescue substation on Md. 67 near Rohrersville.

The Maugansville meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the Maugansville Goodwill Volunteer Fire Co. fire hall.
