The Noxen Post Office will likely undergo an emergency suspension of operation for up to 180 days beginning next month, said Ray Daiutolo Sr., public affairs and communications representative for the Postal Service. Operations managers are evaluating the situation and the exact start date for the suspension is not known. Operations will suspend when the land lease expires in January.
The Noxen Post Office is housed in a trailer on property leased to the Postal Service.
