Needed - better Post Office

Town of Prescott Valley officials are seeking a partnership with the U.S. Postal Service.  A letter written by Mayor Harvey Skoog states the current Post Office on Highway 69 doesn’t adequately serve the needs of the largest and fastest growing community in Yavapai County. Skoog says Town of Prescott Valley officials have been receiving complaints about the Post Office. In the letter to area Postmaster Matthew Mills, Town officials are requesting a written strategy accompanied with a timeline to ensure residents are served properly by the local Post Office.
