HALLIDAY, N.D. (AP) - A western North Dakota town of 230 residents is getting its U.S. post office back after it closed last year.

Service was moved to Golden Valley, nearly 20 miles away, until mail started being delivered to the back room of the town’s City Hall, but hours were limited and inconvenient for full-time workers.

News of their troubles reached U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, who says she and her staff worked on the issue, including bringing Postmaster General Megan Brennan to see North Dakota’s rural mail delivery problems firsthand.

Halliday’s post office reopens Wednesday morning.

The president of the town’s city commission, David Walth, told The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/2kRXhYt ) he’ll come up with an appropriate way to commemorate the post office being restored to the same historic corner building as before.
