"USPS tells Matagorda residents search is on for new post office site " by: Jessica Shepard

   The U.S. Postal Service is actively searching for a new location for the Matagorda post office branch. 
   Over 50 residents attended the informational public meeting about the office’s relocation March 7. 
   The office loses its lease with Stanley’s General Stores in October 2019. 
   “Currently, we’re evaluating the market for potential sites,” Damian Salazar, USPS real estate specialist, said during the meeting. 
   “Our preferred area is within the city limits of Matagorda that meet our space and parking requirements.  
   “I can tell you right now that we’re only looking to lease space or a building. The USPS does not want to buy any land or own a building.” 
   Salazar provided attendees with the specific needs for the relocated office that included 11 parking spaces and just over one total acre in size.
