IDA, AR – DECEMBER 30, 2011
Flint Bradford(left), Ida post office officer in charge, gets his daily mail delivery from mail driver David Schmidt(right) Friday morning. Bradford has to sort the mail and get it ready to put into PO boxes and ready for the local mail carrier too.The post office in Ida, AR is on a list of post office closures. The small post office located on Highway 5 will close this year unless it is taken off the list of closures.
All across America there are rural post offices that are on a list to close. These are a selection of rural post offices in central Arkansas that are on that list. If the post offices are closed those who use those locations will have to travel farther to use the post office or to gather their mail out of their PO boxes. The residents near these small Arkansas towns with post offices set to close are not happy.
