If you’ve been wondering about something in your community, Ask The Times is your place to get answers. The following questions were submitted by readers and answered through the efforts of our news staff.

What is the cause for the flooding of the front parking lot of the post office on Green Street and has it been corrected?

According to post office supervisor Jason Thibeault, the source of the flooding was from a clogged drainage system in the parking lot. The blockage was removed last Monday, and the system seemed to be working during yesterday’s rainy weather.

Thibeault said that is not something that happens very often, and the problem should be fixed now.
