Mellette, SD (KELOAM) - People in Mellette, SD are picking up their mail in nearby Northville, after the Post Office in Mellette was closed late last month.

According to the Aberdeen American News, the U.S. Postal Service suspended operations in Mellette May 22 due to the deteriorating condition of the building.  The Postal Service cited safety for customers and employees as the reason for the emergency suspension.

Mellette Mayor Brian Bauer says the condition of the building has been poor for a long time.  The community had approached the Postal Service about the building condition in the past.

The USPS has not said what the future of the Mellette location holds.
