Saturday Mail Delivery Staying

Share this post

Region residents -- Saturday mail delivery isn't ending just yet. The U-S Postal Service Board of Governors said today (Wednesday) it is delaying its plans to stop Saturday service - because Congress won't allow the change. Postal Service Spokesperson Dave Partenheimer says employees are disappointed. "The board believes that Congress has left us with no choice but to delay the implementation at this time, but the board wants to ensure that our customers of the Postal Service are not unduly burdened by ongoing uncertainties as to whether we'll be able to move forward with the new delivery schedule or not," Partenheimer said. The Postal Service had recommended cutting Saturday delivery starting this August to save two billion dollars a year.
