The United States Postal Service (USPS) will be holding an informational meeting / hearing on the possible closure of the Roselle Park Post Office. The meeting is scheduled to be held at the Elizabeth Main Post Office on 310 North Broad Street in Elizabeth from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Buses will be made available to leave from Roselle Park to help in transporting residents who cannot otherwise get to the Elizabeth Post Office. Although municipal fliers mentioned the meeting place for buses to be in the Borough Hall municipal parking lot at 5:30 p.m., a slight change in time and location has been made to accommodate more residents.

The new time, according to councilman Marc Caswell and confirmed by a representative for the 2nd ward councilman,  is 5:15 p.m. at Michael Mauri Gazebo Park at the intersection of Grant Avenue and Chestnut Street. The buses will still pass by the Borough Hall parking lot to pick up residents who gathered there.

The meeting tonight is to provide information to and receive input from the public. The decision whether to close the post office or keep it open will be made in two (2) months. During that time, residents will still be able to contact the USPS as well as their Congressman and Senators to voice their thoughts and concerns regarding the Roselle Park Post Office. A website, Roselle Park 365 (link), has been created to distribute information and news on the events related to the post office in Roselle Park.
