The U.S. Postal Service today announced that it will hold a public meeting to discuss its proposal to move some of its mail processing from Zanesville to Columbus. The meeting will take place at the Zanesville Muskingum County Welcome Center on December 8th at 7:00 pm. Postal Officials say with a deep decline in mail volume due to current economic conditions it has an excess of employees and equipment in some mail processing operations. A study started August 9th at the Zanesville mail processing facility
supports consolidating some operations to take advantage of processing capacity at the Columbus processing center. At the public meeting Postal Service managers will give an overview of the reasons for the proposal and will listen to community input and concerns. Anyone wishing to submit public comments in writing can send them to: Consumer Affairs Manager, Columbus District 850 Twin Rivers Road, Columbus, Ohio 43216-9631. Public comments will be accepted through December 23rd.
