USPS public meetings Tuesday in Elvaston, Loraine


If you live in some rural areas of the tri-states it might be harder for you to get to the post office soon.

More than a dozen Elvaston residents attended a meeting Tuesday afternoon with the Postal Service, where they were told their post office could soon only be open from 12-4 p.m.

Postal officials say they're currently losing millions of dollars each day and ARE trying to cut costs.

One business owner who relies heavily on the mail said she is just happy the post office will stay open.

"I was concerned if we had a rural carrier the rural carrier would not be able to get as much mail in her car or would want to as I ship out," said Bessie Brenenstall.

On Wednesday, the Griggsville and Payson communities will get a chance to voice their opinions.

Then on Thursday, Hunnewell and Clarence, Missouri will host meetings.
