Post [auth] office locations in Roswell will not process passport applications for the time being due to a lack of staff members with the necessary training.
Postmaster Karla Murphy said the post office recently lost two employees who had the required training to process passports and more staff members are being trained to replace them.
Murphy estimated that it would be at least three weeks before the post office would be ready to start processing again.
In the meantime, the post office will continue to provide passport applications and information and processing is available at the Dexter and Hagerman post office locations. To make an appointment, call the Dexter location at 734-5823 or the Hagerman location at 752-3730.
