I was wondering why the post office couldn't put a drop box in the parking lot by the Dillons store by Wakarusa Drive. We don't have any mail drops that are convenient to drive up to in that area.
There is a study under way to determine where a drop box could be placed in western Lawrence, said Lawrence Postmaster Judy Raney.
"It's in the very preliminary stages," she said.
There are two main considerations in determining a location for a drop box, Raney said. One is whether there is curbside mail delivery in the area, which there is near that Dillons store. The other is proximity to another drop box.
"They need to be at least a mile apart," Raney said.
