RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service plans to end mail processing in three Wyoming cities to save money.

Under a plan released Thursday, mail processing now done in Rawlins and in Wheatland will move to Cheyenne and operations in Rock Springs will shift to Salt Lake City.

The Postal Service plans to move ahead with a total of 260 consolidations nationwide beginning in mid-May. They’re expected to result in a loss of roughly 35,000 jobs, which the post office hopes to achieve mainly through attrition.

The move isn’t expected to cost any jobs in Rawlins, which is understaffed now. However, postmaster Deedee Macey said it will take two days to deliver a letter mailed in the city, instead of one.
