Questionnaires to help determine each post office's future


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.
