EASTON, MD – The U.S. Postal Service will hold a public meeting to discuss its proposal to move some mail processing operations from the Easton Processing and Distribution Facility into the Baltimore Processing and Distribution Center.
The meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 15 at 6:00 p.m. at Easton High School in the Auditorium, 723 Mecklenburg Avenue, Easton, MD 21601. A summary of the proposal, the meeting agenda and presentation materials will be made available to the public on usps.com prior to the meeting.
With the deep decline in mail volume due to current economic conditions, the Postal Service has an excess of employees and equipment in some mail processing operations. A study was begun on March 16 at the Easton Processing and Distribution Facility to determine the feasibility of consolidating redundant operations to see if any efficiencies and cost savings would be achieved.
The study results support consolidating some mail processing operations that are currently being performed at the Easton Processing and Distribution Facility by taking advantage of available processing capacity at the Baltimore Processing and Distribution Center 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, a meeting agenda and presentation materials will be made available on usps.com.
