Post Office Collection Times Change

Russell Post OfficeThe Russell Post Office recently announced a change in mail collection times inside its building and outside in its drive-thru boxes because of a financial crisis at the national level.

Starting April 23, citizens and businesses wanting to get their mail out on a certain day will have to have it inside the Russell Post Office by 12:15 PM or in the outside boxes by 12:39 PM on that day.

Postmaster Randy Caprez says national budget cuts have forced their hand.

Currently, 4:39 PM is when the mail leaves town, but it will leave four hours earlier after the collection times are changed in less than two weeks.

Caprez said he understands it might be a difficult change for some to make, but its one that couldn't be avoided.
