Notice Regarding Gooderham Post Office

Posted to News & Notices on Apr 27, 2016

Council of the Municipality of Highlands East would like to advise you that Canada Post has been provided notice of our intent to terminate our Canada Post Dealership Agreement for the Gooderham Post Office.

The municipality wants it made very clear that they are not interested in Gooderham losing a Post Office. However, we are following proper procedure to investigate our options.

A process must be followed, and Canada Post will be approaching local businesses for a suitable location in the area. A municipally operated Post Office is not a common practice, and this could provide an economic benefit to a local business.

Council will continue a vested interest until a suitable location is determined. Further information will be provided when available.

Please contact Council or Shannon Hunter, CAO/Treasurer to assist with any questions and concerns you may have.

Sincerely,
Council of the Corporation of the Municipality of Highlands East.
