Post Office Reductions Reach Johnson County

By Mark Carlson, Reporter

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Changes are coming to downtown post offices in Iowa City and Coralville. Next week the US Postal Service will hold public meetings in the two cities to discuss the future of their downtown operations.

"I don't think too many people know this is happening," said Coralville Mayor Jim Fausett.

The Postal Service plans to close the downtown office in Coralville and move those operations to the Westside Annex facility on James Street.

"We'd still have a post office, but I have some concerns about that location," Fausett said. "You wouldn't really be able to walk there."

In Iowa City the Postal Service plans to move out of the current facility on Clinton Street and into a smaller undetermined location. Officials have said they hope that spot will be in downtown.
