STARKWEATHER, ND (WDAZ-TV) - Much of the community of Starkweather gathered together Wednesday to show support for the local post office.

The Starkweather location is one of many throughout the U.S. Postal Service has scheduled to close because of budget problems.

Wednesday's meeting was held to gather public comment about the possible closure. It will be included in a packet of information for the Postal Service.

Many Starkweather residents are worried about the effects the possible closure will have.

"I think there are 25 different businesses that we have, not in town but in the country that mail parcels and buy stamps, so it would be some hardship on everybody," Starkweather mayor Glen Weber said.

According to local officials, the Starkweather population has been growing over the last four years.

Public comment about the possible closure will be taken until November 3.
