US Postal Service to Delay Closing of Multiple Postal Offices

The Postal Service is delaying the closing or consolidation of its offices or mail processing facilities to May 15, 2012.

In a statement on its website, the agency said it is responding to requests from lawmakers as it waits for legislation to help fix its financial woes.

“Given the Postal Service’s financial situation and the loss of mail volume, the Postal Service must continue to take all steps necessary to reduce costs and increase revenue,” USPS also said in its statement.

Senators are adamant about the delay, saying it will help them come up with a measure to help reform the Postal Service.

“We believe that it is very important to give Congress the opportunity to reform the Postal Service in a way that protects universal service while ensuring its financial viability for years to come,” the senators wrote.
