Town Council Meeting Tonight – Sykesville Post Office Not on Official Agenda

by Jack White on November 14, 2012

Good morning, folks. Don’t forget there’s a town council meeting tonight if you want to weigh in on the closing of the post office.

The meeting is at 7 in the Townhouse. Here’s more from the Carroll County Times.

Although the post office is not specifically mentioned on the agenda, there will be a period for addressing public concerns near the beginning of the meeting, and I’m sure the post office will come up then.

I never realized how popular the ladies who worked there were, but we keep getting comments like this one.

If only all employees were as resourceful, pleasant, honest and hardworking as Jean, Kathy, Connie and Judy. They not only run the OML Post Office they also manage the feral cat colony on their own time, at their own expense.

They promote the town at the fairs and events on their own time, at their own expense. They decorate and plant flowers and beautify Sykesvile on their own time, at their own expense.

They visit the town’s sick and elderly on their own time at their own expense. They send Get Well Wishes and Condolences. They worry about their patrons and their patron’s families in every part of the world that mail reaches.

They are good citizens and ambassadors and their letter is fabulously written unlike Mr. Miller’s. Bravo and many thanks for your many years of service to the city. I am sorry our support is too little too late.

I guess there are really three issues here.

Why was Jean Maher fired, was it done fairly and properly, and will she get a chance to clear her name?

When will the post office reopen?

The third issue might be, does Sykesville need a post office, but I think a better one is this. Does Sykesville want a post office?

You can’t always measure value just by looking at the bottom line.

Oh, they’ll also be introducing the new town manager tonight. Probably not the best situation for her.

Yes a Town needs a Post Office, In this case the Town also needs a Jobs available sign. We are having a wildcat strike Get Reagan on them.

Come on, MIchael, they’re not on strike, they quit. But I’ll see if I can get in touch with Reagan for you. JW
