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.
