EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) - Evansdale has filed a second appeal to reopen its post office.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says the appeal was filed Dec. 21 with the Postal Regulatory Commission. It's unclear when the commission might rule.

The U.S. Postal Service closed the Evansdale branch on Oct. 21, 2011.

The cash-strapped Postal Service says closing the Evansdale branch would save money, but records show revenue far exceeded expenses that included lease payments and a full-time clerk.

Postal Service spokesman Richard Watkins says the closure decision was based on usage as well.
