Meeting Wednesday on future of Vt. post office

A public meeting will be held on the future of the postal office in White River Junction, Vt.

The U.S. Postal Service is looking to close 3,700 post offices nationwide and 250 mail processing centers, including the one in White River Junction.

The $3 billion in cuts announced early this month would slow first-class mail service, ending next-day deliveries of stamped letters.

The Postal Service has agreed to delay the closing of 252 mail processing centers and 3,700 local post offices until mid-May.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who helped push for the moratorium, plans to attend the meeting on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in White River Junction.
