A small post office in south-central Kentucky is being put up for auction.
Reports say the building where Alvaton's post office is located will be auctioned on Saturday, but that won't mean the end of postal services at the location.
Postal Service spokesman David Walton says the agency has a lease at the building that runs through 2017. He says some small post offices are being considered for closure, but the Alvaton location is not one of them.
Listing agent David Chelf says he's had several people express interest in the property as an investment opportunity, and having rental income guaranteed from the Postal Service helps out.
