After months of confusing statements from the U.S. Postal Service and idle threats from postal officials in Denver, the Hardesty Post Office will close at the end of the month.

Around the beginning of the year Postal Officials sent a letter, obtained by The Northeast News, that telling postal employees at that sub-station to have the building closed up and empty by March 31. But when the letter was made public, officials in Denver said they knew nothing of the closure and were still studying the matter.

It seems today without any fanfare or announcements, the Postal Service has decided to close the Hardesty Office.

Sources tell The Northeast News that they will begin shipping equipment and other mail to post offices around the area but were not sure when exactly the last day of service will be.

They probably figured closing it this way would be easier than saying they were going to restore it over the course of two or more years, then announce one year into the project that due to budget shortcuts the renovations were no longer feasible and the Museum . . sorry . . the Post Office would not be re-opened.
