WASHINGTON, DC (WWAY) -- Rep. Mike McIntyre says he will work to keep the Surf City Post Office open.
Yesterday the US Postal Service announced plans to conduct studies of approximately 3,700 post offices nationwide to determine their viability and future. Surf City's was the only post office in our area on the list.
"I will stand with the citizens of Surf City and do all I can to keep their Post Office open and operational," McIntyre said in a statement. "Post offices are an important component of day-to-day living offering valuable services to residents and businesses. My office has talked with Mayor (Zander) Guy and reassured him of our commitment to the Surf City Post Office, and we will work together to get the US Postal Service the important details and facts about the Surf City Post Office."
The Postal Service plans to look at doing away with some post offices and moving their services to other locations, like convenience and grocery stores.
