MIDDLE AMANA (KWWL) -

An Iowa County post office has reopened after being closed due to failed lease negotiations.

The Middle Amana post office was placed under an emergency suspension April 26 because the postal service and building owner could not agree on rent.

Since then, people have been forced to drive out of town to get service.

An agreement was reached with the landlord yesterday.

People living in Middle Amana say having the post office reopen is more convenient and has a few added benefits.

"You get exercise walking to the post office and you meet friends up there and hear what's happening in town and see what's new going on," said Middle Amana resident Katie Berger.

Earlier this week, U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, a Democrat from Iowa, sent a letter to the postmaster general expressing concern that the suspension of service could have led to the Middle Amana post office being closed for good.
