An appeal must be postmarked by May 22, 2013, and mailed to:
USPS will abide by their own rules
In a surprise development Monday, the Postal Service tacked up an announcement at the Berkeley Main Post Office that appeals on the sale & relocation must be postmarked by May 22, 2013.
When the USPS approved the sale & relocation of our historic post office, they set an appeal deadline of May 7th.
We cried foul and noted that fifteen days was not consistent with USPS regulations, was not the practice on the east coast and was a policy applied only in California. When we asked the Postal Regulatory Commission they said the USPS has the discretion to use either fifteen or thirty days.
Then Congresswoman Barbara Lee's office asked the question. And now Berkeley has the thirty days it is entitled to by USPS regulations.
