New Russia post office to remain open

Citizens cram facility to hear its fate


After the meeting, Sands discussed possible locations for the boxes with the facility’s landlord, Alden Harris. 

Currently, the post office has only 18 antique brass door boxes in an oak frame, with the rest of the mail as general or roadside delivery. 

The present operating situation will continue until at least April or May, at which time the new outdoor boxes will most likely be installed and the adjusted hours established.

“We are trying to work with the people while we are trying to improve our (Postal Service) financial situation,” Sands said.
