Meeting Wednesday on future of Vt. post office
The U.S. Postal Service is looking to close 3,700 post offices nationwide and 250 mail processing centers, including the one in White River Junction.
The $3 billion in cuts announced in early December would slow first-class mail service, ending next-day deliveries of stamped letters.
The Postal Service has agreed to delay the closings until mid-May.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, who helped push for the moratorium, Sen. Patrick Leahy, Rep. Peter Welch and Gov. Peter Shumlin plan to attend the meeting on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in White River Junction. The meeting was pushed back from Dec. 15 so that more people could attend.
