Commissioners invite public to help name renovated post office/library
Barry County Commissioners are inviting the public to help name the former Hastings post office and library building. Last month, the Board of Commissioners named the building the ‘Cabinet Building’ in reference to Barry County’s history as a ‘cabinet county’, and in honor of federal cabinet member William T. Barry, the U.S. Postmaster General for whom Barry County is named. Since that time, many community members have requested an opportunity to suggest alternative names. “For generations, the former post office and library has held a special place in the community’s heart.” said Commissioner Ben Geiger, County Board Chair. “That’s why Barry County has invested in restoring the building, and why we’re asking the public to help celebrate its history with a great name.” Barry County residents of all ages are welcome to submit ideas for a new building name, or express support for the current “Cabinet Building” name. You can submit your suggestion by clicking below or by calling Barry County Administration at (269) 945-1284 during regular business hours. The deadline for suggesting names is Friday, April 21 at 5:00pm.
