Postal Service Closes Mellette Post Office

Postal Service Closes Mellette Post Office
MELLETTE, SD -

The U.S. Postal Service has suspended operations at the Mellette post office, saying the building has deteriorated to the point where it isn't safe for customers or employees.

The Postal Service says the office has been "emergency suspended."

Mellette mayor Brian Bauer says residents are disappointed they can't get their mail in town. Residents also say they haven't been sufficiently informed about the post office's activities.

Bauer says the condition of the Mellette post office has been poor for the past 15 or 20 years. He says members of the community have approached the Postal Service about improving the situation before.

Bauer says the Postal Service is staying tight-lipped about the future of the location. Mellette is located 20 miles south of Aberdeen, along U.S. Highway 281.
