The US Postal Service has agreed to extend the hours of post offices on three Maine islands. Members of Maine’s congressional delegation said the Postal Service had proposed keeping the post office on Cliff Island open only two hours a day and keeping the post offices on Matinicus and Monhegan islands open for four hours.
