LAVALETTE - Lavalette residents are pushing for a permanent post office after Superstorm Sandy destroyed the previous one.

A spokesperson for the U.S Postal Service says it had to terminate the lease at its longtime location on Grand Central Avenue due to extensive damage from Sandy. But residents are urging the Postal Service to rebuild instead.

Mayor Walter LaCicero says he has heard that a new post office will open up at the site of an old ice cream store in neighboring Toms River. LaCicero says he's worried about parking in the area surrounding the potential site.

Postal Service officials will only say that a permanent location has not yet been chosen.

In the meantime, Lavellette residents can use two mobile post offices set up outside the police station.
