Keystone residents need basic postal services

Vic Giarratano, Keystone

RE: Keystone post office future uncertain (SDN, March 21)I own a condo in River Run and live at Keystone Resort four months a year. I have had a P.O. box in the Keystone post office for the past six years. I am sorry to hear that the post office will close. I have a car and it is not a huge inconvenience for me to drive to Dillon to go to the post office. It is an inconvenience for Keystone’s foreign workers and destination guests without cars to take the Stage bus, for more than an hour round trip, to go to the Dillon post office.I suggest that an alternative to keeping the post office open is to arrange for the Dillon post office to install official blue post office deposit boxes at various locations within the resort. Mail would be collected by post office employees and not Vail Resorts employees. As for stamp availability, the Dillon post office can arrange for merchants in Keystone to sell books of stamps.In my opinion, Keystone is a post office orphan. We pay taxes and don’t have mail delivery or official post office boxes to deposit our mail. Why should Vail Resorts be responsible to pay for and deliver a basic government service to the residents, workers and guests of Keystone? It is about time that the Dillon post office provide the basic services to Keystone residents that are given to Dillon residents.
