Such towns as Eagle City may be without their money- losing post offices shortly as a result of regulations taking effect today. The new rules allow the Postal Service to close offices again after a moratorium that had been in effect since July 1, 1976. The Eagle City Post Office serves 14 customers. Last year it took in $708, but cost $11,972 to operate. The American public made up the difference through their postal rates and income taxes. This rural post office is one of thousands that are losing money. The Postal Service has been eyeing them for years, but rural congressmen have pressured the agency to keep the facilities open, leading to the 17-month moratorium on closings. Under a law passed by Congress, the Postal Service cannot close a rural office merely because it is losing money. The law mandates that a list of procedures be met before any office is closed and that service as good or better be maintained afterward. In the case of Eagle City, the Postal Service previously found it could keep the current level of service without an office in the town. "All customers are on the present line of travel of a rural route and can be served at virtually no additional cost," a report this year to the Postal Service's ruling board said. The Eagle City facility was one of 231 scheduled for closing before the moratorium was imposed. The Postal Service had said the annual savings from those closings would be $2.3 million. Postmaster General Benjamin F. Bailar has repeatedly said there would be "no wholesale closing" of post offices and that each closing would be considered separately. In the new regulations, the Postal Service has guaranteed that local residents will have a chance to register their views before any action. In addition, appeals on any closing decision will be allowed before the Postal Rate Commission, a separate agency. The process is expected to take four to eight months before any office can be closed. The Postal Service will allow residents to keep the community mailing address when a post office is closed. Thus, mail will still be addressed to such places as Smile, Ky.; Chicken, Alaska; and Zap, N.D., even if those towns no longer have their own post offices. This was done because of complaints that a town loses its identity when its post office closes. One Postal Service staff study found that $490 million could be saved by closing 17,000 of the nation's 30,000 post offices • without hurting service. This compares to a postal deficit of $662 million in the last fiscal year. mm DO-NOTHING(TM) you deserve it!
