POSTAL SERVICE SURVEYS RESIDENTS ON POST OFFICE OPTIONS
Questionnaires to help determine each post office's future

1/23/2013

The U.S. Postal Service has begun taking surveys of residents who use post offices with questionable futures, as part of the process of determining how to “right-size” them, according to a Postal Service spokesman.

 

Questionnaires have been sent out asking residents whether they prefer to cut their post office’s hours, consolidate with a larger post office nearby, begin mobile carrier delivery, or have their mail delivered to a nearby business.

 

In this area, close to three dozen post offices would see their hours cut  under a plan unveiled last May. 

  • Among those which would be open 6 hours a day instead of 8:

Avonmore, Black Lick, Clarksburg, Commodore, Home, Marion Center, Penn Run, Rossiter, Smicksburg, and Vintondale

 

  • Post offices which would only be open four hours:

Bolivar, Brush Valley, Coral, Dixonville, Emeigh, Gipsy, Glen Campbell, Heilwood, Hillsdale, Lucernemines, Plumville, Robinson, and Rochester Mills

 

  • And those which would be cut to just two hours of operation daily:

Alverda, Arcadia, Chambersville, Clune, Dilltown, Kent, McIntyre, Sagamore, Starford, and West Lebanon.

 

The Postal Service says the plan each town favors will be put into place.  It hopes to have the entire process finished by September 2014.
