Postal Office Hour Reduction

Changes are coming to several local post offices. Hours will be reduced at many of them to cut back on costs.
FLINTON, CAMBRIA COUNTY - Changes are coming to several local post offices. Hours will be reduced at many of them to cut back on costs.

The Flinton Post Office will only be open four hours a day. It's not just Flinton. USPS Representative Joseph Scherder has held the same conversation at several other small towns in the area recently like Coalport, Glasgow, and Fallentimber. He'll be at Irvona and Westover Tuesday

It looks like the post office will be open from 7:00 in the morning to 11:00 Monday through Friday, but the final decision on which four hours it will be open isn't official yet.

Carol Keifer is glad her post office isn't closing. But she doesn't like this option either. She says it is inconvenient for people who depend on the post office. Several people were also worried about what will happen to the employees.

The people that live in this community could get the final ruling in six weeks or it could take as long as January.
