Berkeley discusses future of main post office

On Tuesday night, the Berkeley City Council subcommittee on the projected sale of the main post office met to hear public comments and discuss possible recommendations on actions. Berkeleyside's Emilie Raguso was there, live tweeting the discussion.


  1. Last June, the US Postal Service announced plans to sell Berkeley's main post office, as part of their efforts to lower costs and raise money. Since then, rallies have been held and a smattering of alternative proposals have been floated. Berkeley's City Council is on record opposing the sale. Tuesday night was a chance for the public to tell a council subcommittee what it thought.
