After years of calling for improvements, plans for a new post office in New Prague were announced Thursday, Feb. 15.

According to the United States Postal Service (USPS), the new facility would either be relocated to an existing building in New Prague or the postal service will purchase land for a new facility.

In a press release from the office of U.S. Rep. Angie Craig, "This is incredible news for the city of New Prague, and proof that the pressure we've put on USPS management is working," said Rep. Craig, who with New Prague Mayor Duane Jirik have been advocating for a new post office. "I'm grateful to Mayor Jirik for his partnership on this issue, and we'll keep pushing until there are shovels in the ground and New Prague has a safe, accessible post office."

The USPS stated there will be opportunity for community members to make comments, appeals or suggestions.
