There are some under review in my area. These are very small rural offices that will likely be consolidated into nearby larger town POs. The routes won’t be eliminated, just the offices (and Postmaster/clerk).
I was wondering about the routes. When I heard this on the radio today, I immediately thought of a couple offices in my area that used to serve independent rural communities, which are basically suburbs now. Didn’t understand why they still had full-function post offices.
Yeah, but their criteria suck. Back at my home town down in Louisiana, there are three "post offices" being examined. Two essentially consist of a building and an RFD route. The other is actually "in" a small village and has signficant "walk-in" traffic. So which one are they going to close.....the one with the "walk-in" traffic, because it's "smaller" than the other two. It would make more sense to close the other two, and run the two RFD routes from the remaining location.
