New railing installed at the Webb City post office

Doesn’t seem that long ago that new railing was installed up the front steps of the post office and then the east entrance was made wheel-chair accessible. But all that salt spread on ice to keep customers from falling has taken its toll.

Rust has obviously been a problem.
