"Save our post office," was the message sent loud and clear from Kurten residents Tuesday night.
Those who gathered for a public meeting on the future of the Kurten Post Office came to the consensus that the city should purchase the property and building that houses the current one.
Mayor Ronny Vitulli told News 3 that residents say they will help to make sure the condemned building is brought back up to code. He also says the Postal Service is willing to sign a long-term lease with Kurten to keep the mail flowing.
Originally, the Postal Service planned to build a new one itself, but now says it doesn't have the money.
