Greenwood Post Office could see reduction in window hours
The Greenwood Post Office could see reduced window service hours in the future, according to a survey mailed to residents by the U.S. Postal Service last week.
The survey, dated Sept. 15, asks citizens to select their preferred choice from four options: keep the office open with window service hours changed from seven hours each weekday to four hours each weekday (Saturday hours will not change); do a “discontinuance” study for the office and provide roadside mailbox delivery, with retail and delivery service provided through a rural carrier; conduct a discontinuance study and find an alternative location operated by a contractor, usually a local business; conduct a discontinuance study for the office and relocate Post Office boxes to a nearby Post Office.
The survey also asks for preferences for window service hours, in the event they are reduced to four, and notes that the time when mail is delivered to mail receptacles will likely be affected by the range of hours selected.
Residents are asked to return the surveys by Oct. 10.
An informational meeting is scheduled at the Post Office for Oct. 24 at 4 p.m. A decision on options will not be made until after that meeting.
The survey was mailed from the U.S. Postal Service office in Portland.
