Surf City Post Office removed from Postal Service closure list

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

WASHINGTON (NEWS RELEASE) -– U.S. Representative Mike McIntyre announced today that the Surf City Post Office has been removed from the closure list by the United States Postal Service (USPS).

Congressman McIntyre stated, “This is great news for the residents of Surf City! The Surf City Post Office is an essential component in day-to-day living and in business operations, and its removal from the USPS closure list reinforces that. Mayor Zander Guy is to be commended for his leadership, and the entire Surf City community is to be applauded, for their efforts in working together to gather information, advocate for, and inform the USPS about the importance of the post office to the citizens and the community! Indeed, this is a good day for Surf City!”

Upon getting the news in late July that the USPS had placed the Surf City Post office on its targeted closure list, Congressman McIntyre and Mayor Guy formulated a strategy to inform the USPS about the business impact of the Surf City Post Office and the support from the local community. In September, McIntyre sent a letter to the USPS Postmaster General stressing the importance of the facility and included a petition from over 1600 citizens in support of the post office and three local municipality resolutions in support of the postal facility.

ONLY ON 3: New Hanover Co. spends $600+ to promote town hall; Only 15 show up

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Remember the town hall meeting New Hanover County Commissioners had last week at Williston Elementary? The one where Chairman Jason Barfield and Commissioner Jason Thompson butted heads with Commissioner Brian Berger?

We’ve learned that the county spent more than $600 to do a telemarketing blitz to alert people in the area about the town hall. A total of about 15 people showed up, and most of them said they learned about the meeting because of the sign in front of the school. That works out to be about $45 per person.

We’ll have more details coming up ONLY on WWAY NewsChannel 3 at 5.
