Do you have any interest in the proposal to move the local mail processing operations of the U.S. Postal Service from the Springs to Denver?
If so, this upcoming event is made especially for you.
A public meeting will be held to explain the proposed changes at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, at Mitchell High School Auditorium, 1205 Potter Drive, Colorado Springs, CO.
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 Sept. 15 at the Colorado Springs facility to determine the feasibility of consolidating redundant operations to see if any efficiencies and cost savings would be achieved.
Initial study results support consolidating mail processing operations that are currently being performed at the Colorado Springs, CO, Processing and Distribution Center by taking advantage of available processing capacity at the Denver, CO, Processing and Distribution Center in order to increase efficiency and improve productivity.
A final decision has apparently not been made yet, and you have until Dec. 14 to submit your take on the situation. Let 'em know what you are thinking by writing:
