Congressman Meets With
Hawleyville Post Office Supporters
Congressman Christopher Murphy has met with members of the ad hoc Save Hawleyville Post Office Committee to discuss the groupâs efforts to keep a post office in the Hawleyville section.
Mr Murphy met with about 50 people who attended the gathering held at Booth Library on the afternoon of Saturday, February 28.
The Hawleyville Post Office on Route 25 recently closed for business. Its former post office boxholders now have mailboxes at the main post office on Commerce Road where they may pick up their mail.
The postal service has assured Hawleyville postal customers that in the future it will provide postal facilities for them in Hawleyville to replace the facilities that recently closed.
Mr Murphy told those present February 28 that the postal service agreed to provide a Hawleyville post office in the future as a result of public pressure to do so. Such public support for a Hawleyville post office helped him when dealing with the postal service on the issue, he explained.
First Selectman Joe Borst stressed the importance of keeping postal facilities in Hawleyville.
