Its a fight to the finish line, for some Kurten residents trying to keep a local landmark open for business.

In a town meeting Thursday night, Kurten citizens met with representatives from the United States Postal Service, and Congressman Chet Edwards' office to brainstorm ways to keep the Kurten Post office from closing down.

The mail center may be forced to close because it's current location has been condemned and the postal service says it doesn't have the money to build a new one.

City officials are looking into what it would take to bring the building up to code, or even share a space with an existing business.

The Postal Service says it could still be a few more weeks until a decision is reached.
