The residents of Laurie may be a step closer to getting their postal service back. Their contracted postal unit closed in January of 2017, and the city fought the rest of the year to get it back.

City Clerk Ron Clarke says the U.S. Postal Service regional manager from St. Louis will be visiting the city to meet with the mayor and tour those potential locations.
