The Village of Scotia is known for its quaintness and small-town charm and the Scotia Branch Post Office provides an invaluable service to the residents of the Village as well as serving as a hub of the community. The Scotia Branch Post Office has been a community fixture since its beginning as a WPA project in the 1930s and has provided a valued and vital service to the community ever since. Now, the branch is one of more than 700 nationwide that could face closure, consolidation or reduction of services by the United States Postal Service. Last month, County Legislature Chairwoman Susan E. Savage and County Legislators Dr. Brian Gordon and Marty Finn sponsored a resolution strongly urging the United States Postal Service to reconsider its proposal to close or consolidate the Scotia Branch Post Office and asking Representative Paul Tonko, Senator Charles Schumer and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for their assistance in ensuring the Scotia Branch Post Office will remain open to serve the residents of the Village of Scotia. Please join their effort to keep this postal branch open by signing this petition of support.
