West Branch will get temporary Post Office

WEST BRANCH (KWWL) -- A big reversal is good news for postal customers in West Branch: you won't have to drive to Iowa City's post office during the holiday rush.

The U.S. Postal Service announced it will open a temporary post office at West Branch city Building. That's while the normal post office is closed three to four weeks for installation of a new heating system and asbestos removal.

It's the same option City Administrator Kyle Soukup says the City offered the post office when it first announced the closing. But the USPS turned it down citing security concerns. Just Wednesday, Post Office officials said they would not open a temporary post office. Then Friday, the USPS changed its mind.

The temporary post office at west branch city hall will open Tuesday. It will run from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on weekdays.
