CRANFILLS GAP – People in Cranfills Gap are tired of commuting to Clifton to go to the post office after theirs was shut down last month.
U.S. Postal Service officials won’t do into detail but say it was shutdown for “health and safety issues with the building” however locals say it was closed after a woman stepped through the floorboards.
Whatever the reason, people like Sandra Hartley say something needs to be done soon. “A lot of people mail a lot of stuff from around here and then I get stamps all the time,” says Hartley.
The only post office in town was shutdown in May, locking more than one hundred people out of their P.O. boxes. “This is a busy post office, always got people in and out of it,” says Hartley. We’re a small town but we use it a lot.”
