Jim McCartney, the district coordinator for the United States Postal Service, has recently sent Swans Islanders a Result Notice for the new Post Plan Implementation at the Swans Island Post Office. Please note that the effective date has already changed once, so the date is subject to change. He writes, “It has been determined that effective Feb. 7 – originally Jan. 10 – the Swans Island post office will provide six hours of window service each weekday. The facility retail hours will be from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 12-3 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and from 11 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. on Saturday. Current Saturday window service hours will not be reduced, and access to delivery receptacles will not change as a result of the POST Plan realignment of weekday window service hours. Customers will have access to their mail receptacles from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Post Office Box mail will be available daily for pick-up by 1:15 p.m. Monday through Friday, and at 1:15 p.m. on Saturday.”
