Postal Service Dedicates Refurbished Biloxi Office
Regional and local Postal Service administrators joined local leaders in formally dedicating the downtown Biloxi Post Office this morning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and brief reception. The three-story Main Street office sustained more than three feet of water in Hurricane Katrina. Postal Service employees worked out of a portable postal facility until November, when they returned to the main building, where restoration continued.
The Post Office is a block east of Biloxi's City Hall and has long been a gathering place for gossip among local residents. Hurricane Katrina caused severe damages to the southern portion of Main Street where the Post Office is located. An auto dealership property immediately to the east of the building has been removed to its slab and is awaiting new development.
The second and third floors of the Main Street building are now available for lease.
