In April, the U.S. Postal Service was forced to shut down Oshtemo's mail processing facility to cut costs. But a new bill from U.S. Senator Gary Peters could reverse that and other closings across the country. The Senator’s plan would put a two-year moratorium on postal facility closures. 


"Community officials are fighting to keep three U.S. Postal Service mail processing centers in Michigan open, and new federal legislation could boost their efforts. U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, and three of his fellow lawmakers introduced the bill — the Rural Postal Act of 2015." (Detroit News)

You might have noticed that your letters and bills aren’t reaching their destinations as fast as they used to. That’s because the United States Postal Service changed its delivery standards in January. It now takes two days for an average First Class letter to arrive instead of one.


Sorting and processing work will be transferred to Grand Rapids
