EDWARDSVILLE, Kan. — The best way to describe postal service in Edwardsville, Kansas, is a “total mess,” says Ceila Mohler. She lives at the Edwardsville Village Mobile Home Park.
The city’s post office has been out of commission since March 11 when a car rammed into the back of it. FOX 4 Problem Solvers first met with frustrated residents at the mobile home park nearly a month ago. They’ve been driving 20 miles round-trip to a post office in Kansas City, Kan. to collect their mail. There is no direct service to their homes.
Now, nearly a month later, the problem still hasn’t been solved for the nearly 600 people who live in the mobile home park. Plus the price of gas keeps going up, making that 20-mile trip to the post office even more painful.
