Who’s filling up National Avenue post office parking?

The in basket: Kathy Dulaney said on Jan. 6, “This morning there were 22 cars in the parking lot in front of the post

office (on National Avenue in Bremerton) and no customers inside.  The other day I counted 22 cars and four customers in the parking lot.  Is that a designated Park and Ride?”

“I have been there when I couldn’t even find a spot to park and there were very few

customers inside,” Kathy said.

The out basket: What Kathy sees is the result of the Dec. 1 consolidation of mail carrier activities, shifting all the carriers from the Sylvan Way Post Office in East Bremerton to the National Avenue site, says Postmaster Sandra Sadak.

She has had to let some of the relocated carriers use the front lot, she said. 

Still, there should always be 22 public spots plus two disabled spaces available, she said. About 15 carrier cars use the front lot. 

When the weather improves, she added, the back lot of that post office will be reconfigured to hold more of the carriers’ cars. She isn’t sure if that can completely eliminate the need for some carrier parking in front. 

She’s seen no sign that anyone is turning the front lot into an impromptu park and ride, she said. It’s certainly not a designated one.

  1. I cringe everytime I need to use that Post Office lately. I have a PO Box there. The hours stink 9:30 to 5 pm Mon-Fri only and as the article indicates, parking just to pick up my mail even after hours still stinks.
