I drove down Pacific Highway the other day to purchase stamps at the post office.

When I drove up, I wondered if the post office had closed, since there were tall weeds and litter and a general look of abandoned property. There were cars in the lot, so I stopped to purchase my items.

I went down Pacific Highway again a few days later, thinking the situation would be different, but sadly no.

I don't know who to complain to about the total lack of respect for the property and the shabby exterior, etc., but I am hoping The Mirror will investigate and find who is responsible to see that maintenance and upkeep is completed. A federal building should not be an eyesore for the city.

Editor's note: The Mirror contacted Ernie Swanson, the region's U.S. Postal Service spokesman. "I checked with the person who is in charge of the Federal Way Branch Office about this issue," Swanson wrote in an email. "He says he is in the process of awarding a contract to have the area in front of the Federal Way Branch Office cleaned up. He hopes this can be accomplished within the next week."
