Lake George post office to stay open, hours reduced

Email News Alerts

Lake George's post office has been granted a stay of execution.

An announcement Wednesday that rural post offices would remain open but with drastically reduced hours appears to have spared the quaint facility from certain death.


Once on a hit list of rural post offices slated to close May 15, Lake George is still somewhat in limbo. It is now on an "expanded access study list."

Longtime postmaster Iris Olson retired at the end of 2011.
