PV is looking for upgraded postal services.
Prescott Valley officials feel postal services need to be upgraded for the town. During its meeting at 5:30 tonight, Town Council members will discuss a letter from Mayor Harvey Skoog to area Postmaster Matthew Mills requesting adequate postal services. In the letter, Skoog states the existing post office on Highway 69 doesn’t serve the needs of the largest and fastest growing community in Yavapai County. The current population exceeds 45 thousand residents and the town continues to grow at a rate of 3 to 5 percent each year. The current location can’t physically support the volume of residents that use the Post Office, as evidenced by the daily long lines, lack of adequate parking and the need for a packaging facility that’s separate from the customer service location. The Council meeting will be held in the Library Auditorium on Civic Circle.
