USPS Discusses Closure of Twin Falls Mail Processing Center

A public hearing in Twin Falls last evening dealt with the possibility of the US Postal Service moving a mail processing center from Twin Falls to Boise.  USPS district manager Ken McArthur was in Twin Falls to get input on the possible move and to explain why such a move may be necessary.  McArthur told the crowd of 100 plus attending the meeting that the USPS has lost $8.5-billion dollars in the last year and that any organization losing that much money is not healthy.  He said “we have to do the things we can to save this organization money and save this organization for the future.”  The USPS says moving the Twin Falls mail processing center to Boise would save over $600,000 a year.  Some in the crowd questioned how that could happen by moving the mail 130 miles away to be processed then bringing it right back.  McArthur also said the proposed move is not yet a done deal.  The USPS has experienced a 42 percent decline in usage over the last ten years due to services such as email and online bill pay and expects to lose another $8-billion dollars this year alone.
