Meetings are planned for Tuesday to discuss the U.S. Postal Service's plan to reduce hours at northwest Kansas postal offices.
The meetings will be held Tuesday afternoon in Healy and later that day in Gove.
The postal service wants to reduce service at Gove from eight hours to four. Gove, with 65 residents, is the smallest county seat in Kansas.
The Hays Daily News reports residents plan to attend the meeting, but many believe the decision is already made and reducing the hours is better than closing the post office.
The postal service plans to reduce hours at more than 360 Kansas post offices, 53 of which are in northwest Kansas.
Community meetings are scheduled in Dorrance and Sylvan Grove Oct. 31 to discuss the reductions.
