WAUSAU - Wausau postal customers recently received a survey form from the U.S. Postal Service recently asking for their input into a process that is currently reviewing the Wausau post office.

The results of that survey were to be discussed at a meeting scheduled by the USPS for Thursday, July 17, at Wausau Town Hall.

About 25 local residents kept the date, only to find themselves stood up by the federal agency.

Since then, USPS communications representative Dionne Montague responded to the News' request for an interview, asking for her apologies to be extended to the community.

“We sincerely apologize that our postal representative was not present at the Post Plan meeting in Wausau, FL," said Montague. "We understand our customers took time out of their busy schedules to attend the meeting, and we

apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.  We value the input of the community and we are in the process of rescheduling the meeting for the 2nd or 3rd week in August; everyone will be notified in ample time.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter.”

The meeting has since been rescheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, at Wausau Town Hall, at which time the results of the survey will be discussed.
