WYANDOTTE – The city will continue to have a post office, with a smaller and newer site at 229 Eureka, Mayor Joseph Peterson announced Feb. 6 on social media.

The lease expired on the previous location, 166 Oak St., an older building, and some administrative functions were transferred to the Southgate post office, 14000 Dix-Toledo Road.

Peterson said some of the details still needed to be worked out. He thanked U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) and Postmaster Michael Laurence for their help.

The city had looked at 3099 Biddle, a former Sears store, owned by Joseph Daly, as a possible location, but parking concerns were raised by residents as an issue.
