LUDLOW, Ky. (AP) - Residents and government officials have started a campaign to save the century-old Ludlow post office, which is being threatened with closure.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports that the mayors of Ludlow and neighboring Bromley are organizing petition drives and urging residents to fill out customer use surveys.
Both say the post office is within walking distance of many senior citizens who would find it difficult, if not impossible, to visit post offices in nearby cities.
The Covington postmaster says if the Ludlow facility closes, it
would consolidate with the main post office in that city 3.5 miles away.
The Ludlow post office has been operating this small Ohio River city since the early 1900s, but postal service spokesman David Walton says agency must find ways to reorganize nationwide as it faces a $6 billion loss this fiscal year.
