Post Office hours may be cut in Nichols, Atalissa|
by By Lindsey Jackson · October 10, 2012
A survey wrap up date of Oct. 4 will conclude the United States Postal Service’s effort to reduce window hours of the Atalissa Post Office from eight to four or close the office all together.
In early September, a survey went out to all Atalissa postal customers asking if customers would prefer to narrow down window hours from eight to four at the post office, receive mail via roadside delivery, find a suitable alternative P.O. Box location operated by a contractor, or relocate P.O. Box delivery to another nearby post office. Postal customers were also asked to mark down a preference for window service hours each weekday. An additional comments section was included.
The postal service will hold a meeting at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Atalissa Post Office, 212 Cherry St., for question answering and additional information. At this time, survey results will be known and shared, however the postal service will not make a final decision regarding the hours or closure of the Atalissa Post Office.
The United States Postal Service has made a similar proposal for the Nichols Post Office, however surveys have not yet been sent out.
