The Big Sky Post Office continues to approach a long-term solution.
“The Postal Service has begun the research process to add a new postal operated retail facility in Big Sky,” stated a March 10 press release from the United States Postal Service. “The proposed project includes finding a suitable location, preparing it for use as a Post Office, and transitioning operations from the current contractor operated facility to the new postal operated facility.”
Al Malinowski, President of Gallatin Partners—which operates the Big Sky Post Office and originally sparked action in October from USPS by announcing a termination to their 21 years of contract service—told EBS that he anticipates this announcement refers to a federally-operated post office.
“In the basket of long-term solutions that we’ve been asking for, it’s something we’ve been asking them to consider,” Malinowski said. “A federally operated facility has potential to provide more efficient and additional services to the Big Sky community.”
