Twelve miles may not seem like much, but for some Nemacolin residents, it’s way too far.
Nemacolin Post Office closed Saturday, notifying customers by placing a sign on the door. The sign directs customers to Carmichaels Post Office, more than 12 miles away, for their mail pickup.
“They didn’t let people know,” said Nemacolin resident Linda Dulik. “A lot of people walk to the post office and depend on it. Why put a sign like that and not give anyone warning?”
Dave Plavi, of Nemacolin, said he was told by a postal employee the building was closed because a different employee filed a complaint about black mold. According to Plavi, the employee said the decision was made Monday. A United States Postal Service representative did not return a call or email seeking comment.
