Postal Service to hold public meeting in Columbus

Press Release

COLUMBUS – The U.S. Postal Service will hold a public meeting to discuss its proposal to move some mail processing operations from Columbus Customer Service Mail Processing Center into Montgomery, AL Processing and Distribution Center.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. on November 15 at the Columbus Consolidation Government Center, 100 10th Street.

With the deep decline in mail volume due to current economic conditions and continuing electronic diversion, the Postal Service has an excess of employees and equipment in some mail processing operations.  A study was begun on September 15 at Columbus Customer Service Mail Processing Center to determine the feasibility of consolidating redundant operations to see if any efficiencies and cost savings would be achieved.

Initial study results support consolidating some mail processing operations that are currently being performed at the Columbus Customer Service Mail Processing Center by taking advantage of available processing capacity at the Montgomery, AL Processing and Distribution Center in order to increase efficiency and improve productivity.

While no final decision has been reached, Postal Service managers will give an overview of the reasons for the proposal and its possible outcomes, and will listen to community input and concerns. A summary of the proposal and presentation materials will be made available online one week prior to the meeting at http://about.usps.com/streamlining-operations/area-mail-processing.htm.

Anyone who wishes to submit comments in writing can send them to:

Consumer & Industry Contact Manager

North Florida District

P O Box 40005

Jacksonville, FL 32203-0005 

Public comments will be accepted through November 30.
