Indianapolis and other mail-processing services, including those in Terre Haute, could be consolidated to save the Postal Service money.

The U.S. Postal Service will hold a public meeting to discuss a proposal to move mail-processing operations from their Terre Haute facility to Indianapolis.

The meeting is part of a study to move or close processing and distribution centers in Indiana. The Terre Haute meeting will be 7 p.m. on Monday at Ivy Tech.

USPS spokeswoman Mary Dando says they ask the public to make comments during the meeting and information gathered there will be part of the report.

“Of course we record their comments, document what they say at the meeting and then they have 15 days after that. Those comments are part of the overall decision that‘s being made,” she says.

Dando says information from the Terre Haute meeting will be sent to district and area offices before being sent to headquarters in Washington D.C. for a final decision. Other meetings are scheduled for Wednesday in Lafayette and South Bend on Thursday.
