Damar Residents of the tiny town of Damar in northwestern Kansas say they’ll fight possible plans to close their post office.
The Rooks County town of about 150 residents is among 134 post offices in Kansas the Postal Service has identified as possible locations to be closed.
But Damar Mayor Brian Newell told The Hays Daily News that residents have done a lot to keep their town alive and they want to keep their post office.
Newell said he’s confident the Postal Service doesn’t understand how important the post office is to Damar. He says elderly residents who don’t have cars walk to the post office daily to pick up their mail.
The community is planning a meeting on the issue Wednesday evening.
