The U.S. Postal Service is considering a plan to consolidate its mail processing from its Terre Haute facility into the Indianapolis processing and distribution center.

The United States Postal Service will consider consolidating the Terre Haute processing center with Indianapolis. Spokeswoman Kim Yates said the study is a part of an on-going effort to streamline activity and reduce costs in the wake of less stamped mail.

Yates said the same thing happened to the Bloomington facility past year. The Terre Haute processing center handles 90,000 pieces of stamped mail per day with 10 employees. Yates said the study is in the beginning stages and should be complete sometime in May.

She said Terre Haute residents will be informed of the outcome regardless of the recommendation. If the study committee agrees the processing center should consolidate with Indianapolis, a public hearing will be held allowing residents to voice their own opinion.
