Broken air conditioner causes sweltering conditions at post office


Follow The Republic:


The air conditioning is not working at the downtown Columbus Post Office, causing temperatures to rise to 85 to 89 degrees indoors on Tuesday.

State Rep. Milo Smith, R-Columbus, visited the post office then and noticed the extremely uncomfortable conditions firsthand. He's contacting federal officials about the problem, he said Tuesday.

The postal union has been told by postal officials that it could be a month or longer before the air conditioner is repaired or replaced.
