Extra heaters, canvas windows to keep Post Office patrons warm

After several months of reconstruction, the Post Office Bar and Grill in downtown Fulton unveiled in August a new revamped split-deck patio, complete with a full bar, restrooms and three TVs.

And soon, patrons will be able to continue using these features despite the shift in the weather.

Post Office owners will be adding additional heating equipment to the already-heated upper patio area, as well as canvas over the windows to keep out the sharp Autumn wind.

Post Office manager Kevin Langworthy said they would be adding another 20 feet of radiant heating to the 40 feet already attached to the upper deck ceiling, and the canvas would continue to keep the deck ready to use through the seasons.

“We’re getting some canvas ordered through a tent manufacturer in Springfield, Ill.,” said Langworthy. “It will be a windbreak. They can roll up and come down... The whole upper level will be year round.”
