(Cincinnati) -- Ohio Representative Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) requested answers from the United States Post Office Monday, regarding what steps they plan to take to restore standard postal services to Lynchburg residents.
Currently, local residents have been without normal service following a fire at the United States Post Office in Lynchburg on June 16, 2022, which closed the branch indefinitely. Residents must now drive to Hillsboro to retrieve their mail, an inconvenience that requires some residents to drive up to 20 miles to pick up their mail.
"As we approach the winter months, citizen safety is of paramount concern given the required drive for some constituents to retrieve their mail," said Rep. Wenstrup.
"The Lynchburg community is a rural community where roads can be especially hazardous during inclement winter weather. This will be especially challenging for senior citizens, many who depend on USPS for delivery of their life-saving medications."
