Washington – Today Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) announced a plan has been finalized to expand the American Canyon Post Office by 700 square feet. Construction will begin in January and last around three months. The Post Office will stay open throughout the duration of the expansion.
“As our community continues to grow, it’s crucial that essential services like the Post Office are expanded to suit our needs. That’s why I am so proud to announce this expansion so that our American Canyon community has better postal services,” said Congressman Thompson. “With more space and increased customer service capacity, the Post Office will allow the city to better communicate and interact with our district, our state, and our nation.”
“A new post office for American Canyon has been a long time coming. American Canyon residents greatly appreciate Congressman Mike Thompson’s leadership in the discussions with USPS officials to bring this about,” said American Canyon Mayor Leon Garcia. “American Canyon has doubled in population to twenty thousand residents since our current post office opened. We all look forward to the completion of this expansion that will better serve the needs of our community.”
“We are glad to be giving the community of American Canyon what they have long asked for to meet their daily postal needs – a larger facility,” said Augustine Ruiz, Bay Area Spokesman, United States Postal Service.
