SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown residents have about a month left to submit written comments to the U.S. Postal Service on whether the Sleepy Hollow Post Office should be considered for closure .
The deadline is Jan. 4.
Wed like to hear from anybody who has anything to say good or bad about the possibility of considering closing the Sleepy Hollow branch, Richard Ferrari said during a recent public meeting . Ferrari works in the U.S. Postal Service's Westchester District Office.
Surveys were mailed to Sleepy Hollow residents. Comment forms are also available at the Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown Post Offices.
Ferrari said the information gathered from surveys, forms and the public meeting would be a part of the report used to decide whether the Sleepy Hollow branch should be considered for closure. The U.S. Postal Service's district office will review the materials and decide whether it makes sense to send it to the national office, Ferrari said.
Residents are also being asked by village officials to write letters to their representatives in Congress . Sleepy Hollow officials gathered more than 2,500 petition signatures. They have also contacted the U.S. Postal Service and several congressional representatives about the matter.
Ferrari also said using the Sleepy Hollow Post Office would help.
That's what contributes to our bottom line and more importantly our very survival and to be able to go to just about every community to every mailbox and make a delivery every day, he said. We need more of that.
