‘It’s been miserable’: Small North Bay town going on more than 2 months without a post office
BOLINAS, Calif. (KGO) — It’s a big problem in a small town. In the rural, coastal community of Bolinas in west Marin County it’s now been two months since they’ve had a post office. A large sign on the way into town counts how many days it’s been.
As of Wednesday, it was 61.
“We’re all counting, and we’re all watching, and we’re all pissed, ’cause it’s not right,” Jen Siegel, a Bolinas resident, told ABC7 News.
The post office closed earlier this year due to a dispute between the U.S. Postal Service and the landlord of the building where it operated. Since then, the town’s 2,000 residents have had to drive between 20 and 40 minutes round trip just to get their mail. Few people in town have the option of home delivery.
