Post office in Temple, ME, closing March 24 over lease issue


Sun Journal: The Temple, Maine, post office will close March 24 at the end of the business day, because the building owner is terminating the lease March 31, U.S. Postal Service communications specialist Steve Doherty said.

“We have been actively looking for a new location within Temple and are optimistic about having something in place by that time,” Doherty said. If not, residents will be served at the West Farmington post office at 126 Bridge St., about five miles away.

“If needed at all, that would be a temporary fix until the new Temple post office could begin operation,” Doherty said.  Read more.
