Steamboat briefs for Feb. 11

Post Office reducing passport hours

Acting postmaster Mike Evans said Friday that effective today, passport hours at the downtown U.S. Post Office in Steamboat Springs, at Third Street and U.S. Highway 40, will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Current passport hours, in which people can take passport photos and have passports processed, are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Evans said the slight reduction will give Post Office staff “a little more efficiency in the afternoon.”
