Toxic mold closes Corinth, NY post office, relocation expected


Albany Times Union: Toxic mold has forced the closure of the post office in Corinth, and likely the operation will be moving to a new location and reopen before the Christmas rush, said town Supervisor Richard Lucia on Friday.

A burst water pipe several months ago in the building at 97 Main St. sparked the mold outbreak that forced the building’s closure July 13, said Lucia. “There was black mold all over the place, and they had to close it for health reasons,” he said.

For now, people with mail boxes at the shuttered Corinth facility will have to travel five miles to the Post office in Lake Luzerne, said Lucia.

Postal officials are likely moving the Corinth operation to a new location “within the next several months,” said Lucia. “We hope that it is before Christmas … and I can say this: We will not be losing our Post Office or our ZIP code.”  Read more.
