      Postal Service to hold public meeting on mail processing study

      The United States Postal service is holding a meeting to hear the concerns of Albany residents in regards to a proposal to move some mail processing operations from Albany Customer Service Mail Processing Center into Jacksonville and/or Tallahassee Processing and Distribution Facilities.

      The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. December 6 in the Kirkland Conference Center, Albany Technical College, 1704 South Slappey Blvd.

      The United States Postal Service also added this about the proposal and meeting via a press release:

      With the deep decline in mail volume due to current economic conditions and continuing electronic diversion, the Postal Service has an excess of employees and equipment in some mail processing operations. A study was begun on September 15 at Albany Customer Service Mail Processing Center to determine the feasibility of consolidating redundant operations to see if any efficiencies and cost savings would be achieved.

      Initial study results support consolidating some mail processing operations that are currently being performed at the Albany Customer Service Mail Processing Center by taking advantage of available processing capacity at the Jacksonville and/or Tallahassee Processing and Distribution Facilities in order to increase efficiency and improve productivity.

      While no final decision has been reached, Postal Service managers will give an overview of the reasons for the proposal and its possible outcomes, and will listen to community input and concerns. A summary of the proposal and presentation materials will be made available online one week prior to the meeting at http://about.usps.com/streamlining-operations/area-mail-processing.htm.
