The Old Main Line Visitor Center and Sykesville Post Office, 731 Oklahoma Ave., is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 15.
The Sykesville Post Office closed in early November after long-time manager Jean Maher was fired, according to an Explore Carroll article. Several days later, the remaining three post office employees resigned in protest to Maher's dismissal, the article reports.
With no employees, the post office closed and a heated debate involving Sykesville Mayor Mike Miller, the Town Council and the community ensued. Read more information about the issue and related Town Council meetings on sykesvilleonline.com/blog.
Janice Perrault, Sykesville town clerk, told Patch in an email that new employees have been hired and they will be trained to run the post office.
The post office hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
