The U.S. Postal Service has awarded a contract to build a new post office in Glendale, Kane County, said Postmaster Ila J. Esplin. The contract was awarded to Kaneco Ready-Mix of Kanab for construction of the facility at 45 South Main St.

The post office will be leased for a basic term of 15 years with three five-year renewal options and is expected to be complete by late spring of 1991. Postmaster Esplin added that no tax dollars will go into this project. Since 1983, the Postal Service no longer receives tax dollars for operating expenses, she said.
