No more post offices will closed for the time being. The United States Postal Service announced Dec. 15 that it will "delay the closing or consolidation of any post office until May 15, 2012." The USPS also indicated that it will "proceed with the discontinuance process for any post office in which a final determination was already posted, as of Dec. 12, 2011, including all pending appeals." It's too late for some, though. A petition was filed on Aug. 29 by the citizens of Ottosen to keep their post office open, but the final determination was made to close the Ottosen post office due to a vacant postmaster position and low volume.
