Easton post office to be closed

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- A small east Texas community is surprised to learn the postal service will be closing their city's post office. The united states postal service announced the closing of the post office in Easton.

The tiny post office serves a city of just over 5-hundred people, some of them disabled. The current building was dedicated in 1990. Easton residents say their post office, even though it's small, is essential. Residents have been told the post office could close in as soon as 30 days.

Congressman Louie Gohmert has released a statement on the closing calling it bureaucratic mismanagement.
