Burlington Post Office's future focus of Nov. 8 meeting
BURLINGTON, W.Va. -- The future of the Burlington Post Office could be decided next month.
The News Tribune reported that the U.S. Postal Service has scheduled a public meeting for Nov. 8 to consider four options for the Mineral County office.
Among the options are keeping the office open under reduced operating hours and shutting it down and shifting services to another facility.
The Postal Service ended its most recent fiscal quarter with a net loss of $5.2 billion. It has been losing money as customers use the Internet in increasing numbers to do business, instead of using the mail.
