Meeting scheduled over future of Vanderbilt post office

Vanderbilt council President Tom Sankovich informed members this week that a survey from the U.S. Postal Service went out to all borough residents recently, asking them to choose options concerning the local post office.

Residents were asked about cutting hours; having a rural service with mail delivered to the home and closing the post office; opening a small postal center in a local business where stamps and such could be purchased; or discontinue service, with mail to be picked up at the closest post office.

A meeting was scheduled for 6 p.m. Jan. 31 at the DL&V Volunteer Fire Department on Vanderbilt / Leisenring Road. A postal service representative will be there to answer questions and give results of the survey.

In other business, resident Joe Kurtz expressed concerns about the light on the borough's snowplow truck.

“He (the truck driver) was coming up Liberty (street) plowing and I didn't even see him,” he said. “His light is too small and not bright enough. I know it has to be visible 360 degrees at least a block away.”

Kurtz presented council with a magazine, which shows different lights that can be purchased for the truck.

Sankovich said they would pass the information to the borough worker and see what could be done.

“I just don't want anyone to get hurt,” Kurtz said.

The next council meeting will be held 7 p.m. Feb. 19 in the borough building.
