The U.S. Post Office has reversed the decision to suspend General Delivery at the Glyndon Post Office.
John Cordell, manager of USPS Operation, initially announced that USPS would reverse the decision at a public meeting organized by Historic Glyndon Inc. on January 6, 2012. About 100 Glyndon residents attended the meeting at the Forbush School off Central Avenue.
William L. Ridenour, re-stated the decision in a January 18, 2012 letter to the Glyndon Community Association. “After careful consideration, it has been decided to rescind the January 30, 2012 cut-off date for General Delivery at this time,” Ridenour said in the letter. “This will enable management officials to investigate the ability to install sufficient P. O. Boxes for the affected residents. This action should allow all concerned a rightful resolution.”
About 70 Glyndon households received notices in late December that their General Delivery service would end January 30, 2012. Residents were instructed to either purchase a Post Office Box or request home delivery from the Reisterstown Post Office. Residents requesting home delivery would switch from the 21071 zip code to the 21136 zip code.
In addition to concern about General Delivery, many residents already using Post Office Boxes at the Glyndon Post Office expressed concerns at the January 6 meeting about the deteriorating quality of service to P.O. Box owners in the past two years.
The GCA is forming a committee, including a number of residents who signed up at the meeting, to follow up on the General Delivery and other Post Office concerns.

Saturday’s volunteers included Barbara McClellan, Barbara Whitman, David Hughes, David Porter, Lee Wroe, Sean and Michelle Kriebel, Elise Armacost, John Morris, and Kim and Per Karlsen.

The Glyndon Community Association’s water pipe project task force has coordinated with the County and the film production crew to make sure the two efforts do not conflict.
The 80-member film crew will park at Glyndon United Methodist Church and Glyndon Village Center. The film production crew will have several local college students in safety vests as well as an off-duty policeman making sure parking goes smoothly and the actors find their way to the shoot.
The crew also has promised to scheduling loading and unloading so as not to conflict with the water pipe construction.
