ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Downtown Albany Post office will remain open through September.

Griggs Building Leasing Manager Frances Krack told us she signed a 3-month lease extension with the Postal Service.

The U-S-P-S still plans to close the location. Krack says they want to move the P-O boxes to the main post office. She says they're vital to the downtown customers. "We have a lot of people who are coming and going. There may be anywhere from 200 to 300 people who travel in and out of this building every day. There are 1000 boxes here and 75% of them are leased," Krack said. 

City leaders continue to try to find a private business to contract with the postal service to keep mail service at the downtown location.
