USPS selling Topeka downtown office, parking lot

Topeka Post Office

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The U.S. Postal Service has told Topeka officials it intends to sell its office building and parking lot in downtown Topeka.

In a letter addressed to Mayor Larry Wolgast and City Manager Jim Colson, Angela Kuhl, a USPS real estate specialist, says services will be relocated to an undetermined new location.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports ( ) the letter said people who disapprove of the decision can appeal in writing through March 3.

City Councilman Chad Manspeaker, who tweeted an image of the letter Monday, said on Twitter the building once served as a courthouse, where the historic Brown v. Board of Education was tried.
