Congresswoman Wilson Holds Community Forum with U.S. Deputy Postmaster General to Discuss Edison Post Office Closing
U.S. Postal Service Working Hard to Accommodate Needs of Liberty City Community and Maintain Access to Postal Services for Local Residents
Washington, DC – On Saturday June 4th, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson held a community forum with U.S. Deputy Postmaster General Ronald Stroman to discuss the closing of Liberty City’s Edison Post Office. The meeting served to ensure that Edison area residents maintain access to adequate postal services. The Edison Post Office, located at 760 NW 62nd Street, has served residents of the community since 1953. The forum took place in the Community Room of Edison Towers Apartments.
As a result of the meeting, the U.S. Postal Service is considering establishing a mobile unit to serve the community. The unit would offer the full services of a post office, with the exception of selling money orders. In addition, local residents expressed concern that the Buena Vista Post Office, which is now the closest postal facility, offers no parking. The Miami Postmaster General promised that he would try to identify a solution to that problem.
All residents with a Post Office (P.O.) Box at the facility will receive a change of address card. Local mail delivery will not be affected by the closing. Area residents are asked to direct their questions or concerns to the Miami Postmaster’s Office at (305) 470-0455.
