According to Pepe, officials are seeking, and encourage, more of the public's input on the possible closing. That public input, she said, is just as important as other factors the post office considers when a local office is on the block.
"We've had community meetings where the community comes forward and the post office hasn't closed," she said, but added the opposite has also happened. Pepe also said that if it's decided the Guilderland Center post office will close, residents will have 30 days from the date of the decision to appeal.
Anyone wishing to register an opinion on the proposed closure can call Pepe's office at 464-7475.
