(SALINA, Kan.) — As the U.S. Postal Service continues to deal with money trouble, it's now looking at further mail processing consolidations in Kansas.
Our news partners at The Salina Journal report that the U.S.P.S. announced Monday it has finished an initial study of moving mail processing from Salina to Wichita. The study projects savings of around $1 million a year.
The move comes after previous mail processing consolidations in Kansas, which included moving processing from Colby and Hays to Salina, Hutchinson and Independence to Wichita and Fort Scott and Topeka to Kansas City.
A public meeting about the move is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 30, at Salina Central High School.
The consolidations come as the U.S.P.S. struggles to deal with rising costs and dropping traditional mail use. Some 250 consolidations have been finished or are in the works across the country.
