MAIL SERVICE A lot of our customer’s mailboxes are on what we call mounted routes. This has been an extremely hard winter for all of our carriers who should be commended for a job well done. But wether it is winter or summer, a customer can help by not blocking the approach to our mailbox, whether with a vehicle, snow, etc. Thank you a million times over for all of our wonderful customers that keep this approach clear for your carrier. They have enough to deal with having to fight through extreme temperatures, snow, rain, sleet, etc. without trying to weave and bob around a vehicle. I am thanking everyone in advance for doing this for us. The postal service put out a mandate over a year ago to remove vending machines from most postal lobbies. Unfortunately, ours was one. We do however offer stamps sold at Doc’s Drugs or Berkots. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused our customers especially those wanting very few stamps. Thank you to all of our customers in Coal City , Diamond, Carbon Hill, as well as the surrounding communities.
