Not only is the Boca Grande Post Office safe from closure, it has received an upgrade in rank.
“We lost 13 postmasters in the 339 district,” said Boca Grande Postmaster Linda Webb. “We were rated a level 15 facility, and they bumped us up to a level 18. Then they removed the postmasters from all facilities rated 15 or lower.”
It is entirely possible that the toll bridge saved the office, since residents would have to travel across the bridge, and pay the toll, in order to get their mail if the island office closed. The postal service may have seen this as an unfair burden on residents.
So when you are ready to ship your Christmas packages, you can be sure that the same smiling faces will be there to help.
