Olpe post office

The Olpe Post Office at 118 Westphalia St will close Friday, May 13. The Emporia postmaster says service will be “temporarily suspended.”

Olpe will be without a post office in two weeks, due to what the U.S. Postal Service calls a “change of ownership.”

A letter sent Friday by Emporia Postmaster Tess Weimar says the USPS had a “loss of lease” on its Olpe location at 118 Westphalia Street.

We need to hear from Mr. Haag, The Mayor and Mr. Farr. This will be a big inconvenience to the people of Olpe. It would be nice to know how we got into this predicament.
