Snyder, NE post office closed for emergency suspension


Norfolk Daily News: A town hall meeting Tuesday night at the Snyder Auditorium included plans for mail delivery following the lock down of the Post Office in Snyder, Nebraska, a week ago as the building was ruled unsafe.

“At this time we are not in the process of closing post offices,” said Dawn Bayer, manager of post office operations from Lincoln.

The post office closed last Wednesday afternoon. Parts of the ceiling have fallen.

Bayer explained the old building has moisture issues. When old ceiling parts fall, they usually come down in chunks and have gone through the drop ceiling tiles.

“The landlord is given an opportunity to respond,” Bayer said. “If the landlord decides to repair, we give him time to repair, then have it inspected and reoccupy and resume just like before. It could take two to three years.”  Read more.
