WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says 32 post offices in North Dakota will extend their hours of operation.

The senator from North Dakota says the U.S. Postal Service has committed to also install self-service kiosks in Dickinson, Watford City and Williston, the heart of the state’s oil country.

Officials in North Dakota have been pushing the Postal Service to improve service in the western part of the state, which is bustling with oil activity.

U.S. Sen. John Hoeven last month announced that the Postal Service will grant pay increases and bonuses to recruit and retain mail carriers in that region of the state.
