St. John To Get New Post Office

The St. John Source is reporting the following:

"Dec. 10, 2003 - A new post office for St. John is on the front burner, said Glenn Jackson, who serves as postmaster in St. John.
      "Soon, very soon, St. John will have a new modern post office," she said to the two dozen people gathered Wednesday at a St. John Business and Professional Women-sponsored forum at the Legislature building.
      She did not have a date for work to begin or a location, but said that it may turn out that the U.S. Postal Service utilizes an existing building or swaps land with the U.S. Interior Department. The Interior Department oversees activities at the V.I. National Park."

That seems like good news, but the article also mentions that the USPS needs to cut man hours out of St. John. The Sugar Estate PO here on St. Thomas has been swamped with the holiday rush, and if anything it seems like we need more postal workers, not less. I still can't make sense of the story of the mail leaving the VI for sorting in Puerto Rico either...
