The Arnoldsburg post office is being considered for a cut in operating hours.|
A public meeting with customers has been set for Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. at the Arnoldsburg Community Building.
The Arnoldsburg office, according to a letter and survey sent to customers, could be cut from 8 to 6 hours.
Hours are scheduled to be cut at Millstone, Orma, Chloe, Big Springs and Big Bend post offices, down to six, four or two hours a day.
US Postal officials say no final decision will be made until after the public meeting in Arnoldsburg.
With US Postal billions in the red, thousands of post offices, mostly in rural areas have been closed, slated for closure or hours cut, in addition to a number of large hub mailing centers that are being consolidated.
Postal customers, starting this weekend, will need another penny to mail a letter. The price of a first-class stamp has now risen to 46 cents.
