Provo center on list of possible postal closings

The cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service said Monday it is seeking to move quickly to close 252 mail processing centers, including one in Provo, and slow first-class delivery next spring, citing steadily declining mail volume.
The Provo center at 936 S. 250 East, employs about 80 people. If the facility is closed, an adjoining post office would remain open, USPS officials say. However, 14 other post offices in Utah, mostly in rural areas, also are on a closure list as part of cost-cutting moves. Salt Lake Tribune
