Hour reductions for local post offices

CORWITH, Iowa-The United States Postal Service announced a plan last year to reduce hours at post offices around the United States. The plan is now starting to affect some of the local areas.

On Tuesday, a meeting at the Corwith Post Office gathered several disgruntled residents and raised questions on what they can do to get their mail delivered on time.  They are upset because their branch will only be open four hours a day with the changes.  Those are expected to start as early as September.

Many of the residents came to show support for the Post Office.  They expressed that some of the small businesses in the area use the local location on a daily basis.

“I want to keep the Post Office,” said Norman Chambers. “If I have to make some adjustments, that is much better than traveling to a different post office.”

Some of the supporters explained they are willing to buy as many stamps as it takes in order to get the normal hours back.
