Delegate Donna M. Christensen said VI Postal authorities have about three weeks to make a decision where to build a new post office on St. John. After meeting with Service officials, she told the St. John Source that both the Vendors Plaza, to be built in downtown Cruz Bay, or Guinea Grove, across south shore road from the Westin, "have problems." She warned, "the (government) money may not be there if the (postal) team cannot make a definite presentation by the beginning of May".
Christensen commented after meeting on St. Croix with Postal Service representatives. "I took the opportunity to address constituent issues that have been repeatedly brought to my attention such as delayed mail, the holding and opening of packages by the Customs Bureau, and the late arrival of periodicals like Time and Newsweek," she told the Source.
