The United States Postal Service has notified the customers of the Rippey Post Office of a Community meeting to be held on Wednesday May 25th from 6:00 -7:00 P.M. to discuss “a possible change in the way the postal service is provided”. In a letter from Jean Susnjar, Manager of Post Office Operations in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, it is stated the recommended change is tentative and will “not lead to a formal proposal unless we conclude that it will provide a maximum degree of regular and effective service”.  The letter further states the Postal Service would like to provide pickup and delivery of the mail and all other customary postal services by rural route emanating from the Grand Junction Post Office, 8 miles away.

The letter goes on to state that …. “it is estimated that carrier service would cost the Postal Service substantially less than maintaining the Post Office in your community”.
