Sources at the Bayfield Post Office said Susan Service, the Bayfield postmaster who requested a transfer last year to another post office, has asked to return to the Bayfield facility.
Service is still technically Bayfield Postmaster. She requested a transfer to the Hesperus Post Office last year after she had planned to take a medical leave from the Bayfield post office, then retire.
She changed her mind, according to postal employees, and said she wanted to come back.
Several post office customers and Times readers said they did not want her to return.
David Brooks, a spokesman for the United States Postal Service in Denver, said at the time it was Service’s decision to request a transfer to another post office.
So far, reaction to Service’s impending return has been negative.
“We’ll just have to do something,” said Grace Sossaman, who has previously gathered signatures for a petition asking for Service’s removal from the Bayfield office.
