Post Office stays open, hours may be cut 45 minutes each weekday

(Posted Thursday, July 17, 2014) Residents attending a meeting Wednesday gave a sigh of relief to hear the Eagleville Post Office will not be closing, saying they had already lost their bank and did not want to lose their post office too. Instead the recommendation for the facility will be to reduce the number of hours the window service portion will be open per day on weekdays to six. Currently the post office is open weekdays 6 hours and 45 minutes. All else, including access to the post office boxes and delivery of the mail, would remain the same. The change will need final approval before going into effect sometime between September and January.

City officials have mailed 132 letters requesting an easement from those living along the initial sewer line route.  The city's engineer, Jamie Reed of SEC Inc., last week stressed the urgency for residents to sign the easement documents because the city's contractor is ready to install the equipment at their homes. He noted the sewer system has been bid, and the contractor has been on the job for months already.
