Residents want improvement to post office conditions
According to Dundalk resident Gary Bond, he drives by the Dundalk Post Office at least once a week and is unhappy with the condition of the facility.
Bond and others have complained for years about both the exterior and interior of the facility, noting flaking paint and other aging infrastructure.
Good people in Dundalk are being let down because nothing is being done to beautify the post office, according to Bond.
More three years ago, Bond says, he spoke with someone from U.S. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger’s (D-2) office and, according to Bond, they informed him that money was available for improvements, both inside and outside the office. However, nothing has changed.
“If this were a Towson post office, I assume something would be done right way,” Bond said.
According to post office spokesperson Freda Sauter, repairs to the roof and air condition unit are underway at the Dundalk Post Office now.
Additional repairs, such as painting the outside windows of the building, are scheduled for next month.
Residents with concerns can contact Rep. Ruppersberger’s district director, Cori Duggins, at 410-6282707 or email her at cori.duggins@ mail.house.gov.
The aging Dundalk Post Office suffers myriad issues, including peeling paint and damaged roof and windows.
