Pols Put Pressure on Post Office, Landlord
The neighborhood's elected officials are pressuring postal officials and the landlord of 655 Centre St. to reach a deal that would avoid moving the facility. As first reported by Jamaica Plain News, postal officials have set in motion the process to move the JP Post Office after they were unable to come to terms with the landlord on a new lease. On Friday, in an effort organized by JP's district city councilor, Matt O'Malley, elected officials sent a letter urging a resolution. "After having conversations with both Mike Powers from the United States Post Office and Robert Schlager of Bulfinch Properties," read part of the letter, "we are deeply concerned about the lack of communication and conflicting stories being expressed by all parties."
