Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said he has received notice from the United State Postal Service that it intends to relocate the Saugatuck Detached Post Office Box Unit to 25 Franklin St.
In a Jan. 23 letter, Joseph J. Mulvey, real estate specialist for the Postal Service, informed Joseloff that the facility, currently operating out of a trailer at 20 Saugatuck Ave., had been scheduled to move into a permanent space at that location.
However, he said, “we were unable to secure that space for our needs” and the Franklin Street site was selected instead.

He said comments on the selected site may be received within the next 30 days addressed to his attention at 2 Congress St., Room 8, Milford, MA 01757.
