PARKMAN -- The village post office plays a big role in this small community.

But the United States Postal Service's growing money problems could soon mean a significant change there.

It's now open 8 hours a day and the USPS proposes its being open 4 hours a day.

The hours' reductions are part of a nationwide plan impacting thousands of post offices across the country.

There are 227 that are affected in the northern Ohio district.

The USPS originally proposed closing many little-used rural offices.

But the concern and outrage that brought caused it to instead use cutbacks.

Surveys are being mailed to residents and businesses in impacted communities. Public meetings will be held.

The Parkman meeting is set for October 10.

There is only one employee in the Parkman post office and there is no home delivery. Customers come get their mail at the post office.

Almost 400 questionnaires were mailed to Parkman-area residents.

The USPS hopes to establish what it calls "village post offices" in communities with hours' reductions. To do that, it's seeking merchants and business owners willing to sell postal products during their own retail hours.

WKYC's Tom Beres will bring you the story starting at 6.

Here are the local post offices being considered for hours reductions. The number after the locations, e.g., 8 4 means 8 hours now, suggested 4 hours
