Postal Service interested in moving downtown location in East Liverpool, OH


The Review: The U.S. Postal Service is interested in moving the downtown post office in East Liverpool, Ohio.

An email, received Thursday, announces a public meeting about the move will take place 5 p.m. Nov. 19 in council chambers at East Liverpool City Hall.

The postal service will discuss with attendees a proposal to move its retail operations and delivery — currently provided at the East Liverpool Post Office, 700 Dresden Ave. — to another location somewhere in town.

Although a new location has not yet been determined, officials with the postal service said the new site would be “as close as reasonably possible to the existing site.”

According to spokesman David Van Allen, the move will consist of all operations to another location, which will be discussed during the meeting next month.

“It will be retail service and delivery,” Van Allen said. “The window service there is what we call the retail service.”

He did not provide any detail as to why the move to another building is wanted by the USPS.  Read more.

(Note: The East Liverpool office is located in a leased facility, so it’s possible that the decision to relocate involves a lease renewal issue.)
