The state Department of Treasury then announced it is working to assist residents in towns who had mail that may have been sent to government offices between Sept. 7 and Sept. 10.

The U.S. Postal Service announced Tuesday it will study whether to close 3,700 retail offices—including the Village Center Station at 566 Allen Road in The Hills—among its nearly 32,000 post offices nationwide. No decision has been made on closing any of the post offices to be considered. But Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said in Tuesday's news release, "the Postal Service of the future will be smaller, leaner and more competitive and it will continue to drive commerce, serve communities and deliver value." Bernards Township now has three post offices. The Village Center Station and the Basking Ridge post office at 21 Brownlee in downtown Basking Ridge both have a zip code of 07920.
