The United States Postal Service is asking for another opinion on a proposal that could affect several Indiana facilities including those in Bloomington, Columbus, Kokomo and Terre Haute.
The Postal Service is filing a request with the Postal Regulatory Commission for an advisory opinion on possible cuts. USPS Indiana Spokeswoman Mary Dando says it could mean the recommended closure of the Bloomington mail processing center is delayed.
“Probably look to early spring time if anything were to happen,” she says. “Maybe February or March, for anything, whatever might happen.”
Dando says the public comment deadline for the Bloomington closure remains December 13, adding it could take up to 90 days to make a decision about the facility’s future and that of seven other operations in Indiana.
