John Gillie reports in The Olympian:
“Mail sorting facilities in Tacoma, Olympia and Everett would be closed and their work moved to a central facility in the Seattle area under a budget-cutting plan the U.S. Postal Service rolled out this week.
That plan, still under study, could end assured overnight delivery of first-class mail among cities in the Puget Sound area, the Postal Service acknowledged Tuesday [Nov. 1].”
“The Postal Service will hold a public meeting on the Tacoma shutdown plan at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 17 at the Tacoma Main Library, 1102 Tacoma Ave. S. A similar meeting is planned for Olympia, but a specific time and place have not been announced.”
