On Wednesday, the United States Postal Service held a meeting to gather input from the community on where the post office, currently located in White Flint Mall, will be. USPS currently has a lease with the mall, which ends on May 31, 2014. USPS was under the impression that Lerner, who owns White Flint Mall, would be happier if USPS vacated the mall sooner.…
