Eastern Ky. town concerned about dirty post office

FLEMING-NEON, Ky. (AP) - Delivering the mail can sometimes be a dirty job, but for one eastern Kentucky town, dropping it off shouldn't be.

Officials in Fleming-Neon say the town's post office is a "disgrace" and one official called it "just dirty." They want the facility cleaned up and have threatened to call U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) if nothing is done about it.

Mayor Susan Polls told The Mountain Eagle that if the post office isn't cleaned up after a new post master is appointed, she'll contact Rogers and the Postal Service.

Postal Service spokesman David Walton says the manager for operations at the facility has been notified of the complaints.

Hours have been reduced recently at the Fleming-Neon post office, resulting in the building no longer qualifying for janitorial services.
