Vanderhoof post office re-opening Tuesday

Vanderhoof’s post office was closed due to air pollution and flooding, as per a notice on the building

Vanderhoof post office will be back open on normal schedule on Jan. 28.

Barbara Davis, postal worker at the Vanderhoof Canada Post building made a post on Facebook saying the office will be open Tueday for regular hours which is from 9 am until 5 pm.

“Once again sorry for the inconvenience this has caused and we at the post office thank you for your patience,” she wrote.

Canada Post hasn’t responded to a request for comment by the Omineca Express.

Mail delivery was affected last week, when the post office staff put out a notice informing people that the building was closed due to air pollution and flooding.

No other details have been provided.

Vanderhoof Mayor Gerry Thiessen spoke to the Omineca Express Monday afternoon and said the district is working with MP Todd Doherty in regard to the state of the Canada Post building.

Thiessen said the condition of the building is “not acceptable”.

The Canada Post building is owned by the federal government and Thiessen said he is working with Doherty to come up with a solution to get the building to the right safety code. He said he is expecting a response from the MP this week.
