Post Offices: BY U.S. SENATOR MIKE CRAPO (EDITED FOR BREVITY) Given the U.S. Postal Service's (USPS) problemat- ic financial situation, many may be wondering about the continuation of their services. Throughout the 237 years 'of the Postal Service's exis- tence, Congress has enact- ed legislation affecting the operation of the Postal Service. This includes Congress designating the USPS a.s a self-supporting entity and directing the USPS to provide prompt, reliable and efficient service to all communities. The law states that the Postal New Available Community Hubs Service "shall provide a maximum degree of effec- tive and regular postal ser- vices to rural areas, com- munities, and small towns where post offices are not self-sustaining. No small post office shall be closed solely for operating at a deficit, it being the specific intent of the Congress that effective postal services be insured to residents of both urban and rural communi- ties." The Postal Service has proposed closing thousands of facilities. In May, the Postmaster General released a new five-year plan that seeks to preserve the major- ity of rural post offices, partly by reducing operating hours. A list of Idaho post offices with reduced hours can be accessed here: uments/post offices.pdf. I encourage those-inter- ested in this issue to con- tinue to share your com- ments. All final decisions regarding post office clo- sures or reduced hours will be reviewed by the inde- pendent Postal Regulatory Commission, and the USPS expects to have its final pro- posals implemented by the fall of 2014. $3.00 each "Hometown Heroes" a Collection of The Adams County Record 2011 Community 108 illinois Avenue, Council Praying up new prayers to pray is harder than-the time.
