Pinecrest Post Office

Sept 18, 2012:  More news from Strawberry:  We are told that the USPS is having a meeting on October 23 at the Pinecrest Community Center (the Old Pinecrest School in Pinecrest) at 6:00 pm.  The topic will be the reduction of hours for the Pinecrest Post Office. Some Post Office staff tell us informally that they believe this is a precursor to closing the Pinecrest Post Office.  It appears that if Pinecrest is closed, options for mail service include clusters of boxes like we have in Cold, moving to the limited number of boxes at Strawberry or mail pick up in Mi-Wuk.  Some also think that it is also possible that the Strawberry Post Office could close.

On another matter, we are told by a representative of the Strawberry Fire Protection District that the Fire Fee bills for Tuolumne County will come out in December.  A line of argument is developing that properties in Strawberry/Cold Springs might not be in either “State Responsibility Area” nor a Federal one.  Existing agreements Due to an agreement with the Forest Service and CalFire we are a Direct Protection Area with the responsible agency being the Forest Service. This may make certain properties exempt from the Fee.  SFPD will keep us posted on developments and possible courses of action.
