Rawlins Mail Processing Move Still Being Studied
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service is still considering moving mail processing operations for Rawlins to Cheyenne.
The Postal Service announced Tuesday that it would postpone post office closures or changes from April to May. Despite that delay, Postal Service spokesman David Rupert says the agency continues to review the proposed closures.
The Rawlins Times (http://bit.ly/s7NVBL) reports that a decision on the fate of where Rawlins mail should be sorted is still expected by the end of February. If the Postal Service backs moving operations to Cheyenne, the switch wouldn’t happen until May 15.
The move would mean it would take an extra day for mail to be delivered.
The Postal Service is considering closing 43 post offices in Wyoming, nearly a third of the state’s outlets.
