COLBY, Kan. (AP) The U.S. Postal Service is investigating the post office in Colby and has placed two of its top employees on paid administrative leave.
The Hays Daily News reports that Colby Postmaster Kenton Krehbiel and customer service supervisor Stanley Strange are on paid leave as a result of the internal investigation.
The Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Postal Service conducted an investigation at the Colby office and says that it found a violation concerning Postal Service procedures for the external First Class Measurement System. The OIG says results of the investigation have been forwarded to Postal Service management.
The external first-class measurement system involves the use of an outside contractor to measure delivery time of local mail.
