Postal survey results announced

Winnebago Postmaster Lynda Urban (standing) has Hanska resident Delores Armstrong sign in at the public meeting while Marlyn and Mary Moldan wait for their turn.
The United States Postal Service should be announcing their decision regarding the changes at the Hanska Post Office any day now. That was the word given out at the Wednesday, July 16 public meeting in Hanska.
About a dozen residents showed up to listen and pose questions to representatives from the postal service, which included former Hanska Postmaster Darrick Miest. Miest is currently the acting manager of postal operations in the 560 and 561 zip codes. Postmasters Mary Larson from Springfield and Postmaster Lynda Urban from Winnebago were also on hand.
Larson announced, “One hundred seventy-eight surveys were returned out of the 490 surveys that were mailed.”
Eighty-two percent of the returned surveys indicated the choice of realignment (reduction) of hours; eight percent chose having the home delivery option; two percent chose the village post office option; and no one chose the option of having all mail delivery through a nearby post office. Thirteen patrons (seven percent) returned the survey with no option checked.
