Smaller towns adjusting to post office changes

LAWTON, Iowa (AP) — Small towns in Iowa and Nebraska are getting used to reduced hours at their local post offices.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1nSyxLa ) many residents are happy they still have a post office even if they have less access to it.

The U.S. Postal Service has reduced hours at more than 7,000 post offices nationwide and consolidated 143 mail processing centers to reduce costs.

In Lawton, Iowa, the post office now closes at 2 p.m. on weekdays and is only open for an hour Saturday. Heath Mallory with Western Iowa Telephone says it's harder to get mailings out before closing.

Bronson, Iowa, Mayor Dave Amick says he's glad the town kept its post office even if it's harder for people who work full time to get there.
