New post office in the future for Kitty

A spanking new post office is in the future for the Kitty community as its current building located at Alexander and Pike streets Kitty is up for sale and removal.

The building has been in a state of disrepair for quite a while, Post Master General of the Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC) Henry Dundas noted.

Dundas said the two-storey timber building is approximately 3,052 sq ft on both levels and was earmarked to be rebuilt in the last quarter of 2013 by the corporation.

He added that plans are in place to ensure that customers continue to access postal services. Dundas opined that Georgetown has enough post offices to accommodate persons who use the post office, citing the Campbellville Post Office, as one that will be accommodating customers during the closure of the Kitty Post Office.

He said staff of the Kitty Post Office will be dispersed to various post offices, and will be tasked with their normal duties of delivering mail in the Kitty area. “The people will be served,” he asserted, reiterating that persons in the Kitty area should not be worried about losing postal services. In addition, Dundas stated that the move is to ensure better service is delivered.

This publication was told that the construction of the new post office will commence as soon as the old building is sold and removed.

When Stabroek News visited the post office, it was business as usual. A couple of persons were at the counter awaiting their turn to conduct their business. One pensioner told this newspaper that she welcomes the move to rebuild the post office, but hopes her mails wouldn’t get lost and that her monthly transactions with the organisation continue without much inconvenience.

Marcel Nicholson said he will be affected since he collects his pension from the post office.

But he added that he welcomes the move to rebuild the post office and hopes he can continue to conduct his business without much fatigue.
