As part of its plan to close thousands of rural post office, the U.S. Postal Service last September mailed its customers a survey to determine how the affected post offices were being used.

On Thursday, the USPS is conducting meetings with the same local patrons to discuss the findings of the survey.

The schedule:

Skidmore, Skidmore Community Center, noon; Tuleta, Tuleta Community Center, 12:30 p.m.; Tynan, Tynan Recreational Hall, 2 p.m.; Pawnee, Pawnee Fire Department, 5 p.m.

The USPS says those post offices affected will remain open but under four different conditions.

• Keep the office open based on actual office workload.

• Conduct a discontinuance study and offer roadside mailbox delivery.

• Conduct a discontinuance study for the office and find a suitable alternative location operated by a contractor.

• Conduct a discontinuance study for the post office and provide a post office box service.
