Window hours at small post offices in Pierce County curtailed

BAY CITY--The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) announced earlier this year Saturday mail delivery will end nationwide effective this August.

But patrons of small post offices, including those at Bay City, Beldenville, Hager City and Plum City in this vicinity, are already experiencing another of the service's cutbacks. And they may be joined by people patronizing the Elmwood Post Office in the future.

The plan involves limiting the schedule of hours and staffing in response.
