The subject of the community bulletin board and why it was removed from the postal station surfaced at the question and answer session this week.
The response from the board was the postmaster authorized its removal.
A property owner said he contacted the U.S. Postal Service district manager and received a letter that stated regulations concerning community bulletin boards do exist;
however, they address leased and owned Post Offices. These regulations exist to provide official government notices to the public and cannot be used to display items such as private business advertisements. Your town center building is not a Post Office and therefore is not governed under these guidelines.
The property owner said the post office did not authorize the removal of the bulletin board.
TLPOA secretary David Distler said the issue has been addressed several times.
We suggest that property owners or vendors wanting to use the bulletin board to publish an announcement contact the TLPOA office.
