GREENWOOD SPRINGS POST OFFICE – Jill Dabbs, postmaster relief at the Greenwood Springs Post Office, checks in boxes for delivery.

According to Dana Amos, manager for post office operations for the area, officials have not decided on how those two hours will be scheduled each day.

“Our current window hours at the post office are from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.,” said Jill Dabbs, postmaster relief at Greenwood Springs.

In an effort to bypass closings of rural post offices, the U. S. Postal Service is reducing hours at 225 post offices across the country during the next couple of years.

Amos said that eventually the Prairie Post Office in Monroe County will have reduced hours, but it has not been decided when it will be changed.

Customers will still have access to their mailboxes in the post office lobbies when the windows are not open.
