There are pages and pages of petition signatures from people in Sunriver who are opposed to the U.S. Postal Service's plans to shutdown the local office. And a meeting tonight in Sunriver, hosted by the postal service,  is expected to draw a lot of people. Brook Snavely with the Sunriver Owners Association says there is a big difference between towns like Shaniko, Post, Brothers, Fort Rock, and Sunriver. He says records from the post office shows they get much more revenue in Sunriver than other places in Oregon targeted for closure: “They even sent out some information about the revenues over the past five years, they are making an average between $450,000 and $500,000 a year at this location; this is not a 50 dollars a day post office." He says if the local office closes down, some people may be forced to travel to Bend for services, which isn't very realistic in the winter-time with a mountain pass like Lava Butte in between Bend and Sunriver. Nationwide, the U.S. Postal Service is fighting for survival and is cutting costs by shutting down offices that aren't very profitable.
