Postal Service to shut down Huntsville Mail Processing facility in May ...purposely slowing Huntsville mail

Closings give new meaning to snail mail

Article Excerpt: "... In January, the U.S. Postal Service closed part of the Huntsville Processing and Distribution Center
and moved those operations to a Birmingham center.

For years, Shoals mail was routed through the Huntsville center. Now, it travels some 120 miles to Birmingham for processing, then makes the return journey.

That means the Huntsville postmark on Shoals mail is becoming a thing of the past — something that might become permanent starting May 15, when the Huntsville facility likely will be completely shut down. ..."

Community Meeting to Save the Rocket City Mail Processing Facility Tonight

Community Meeting to Save the Rocket City Mail Processing Facility Tonight

The U.S. Postal Service will be conducting a community meeting tonight to discuss moving outgoing mail processing operations from Huntsville to the Birmingham area. This move will virtually remove the Huntsville postmark. However, in an effort to pacify the community and force this move, the Postal Service says the postmark can be requested. Additionally, it is suspected that this move will delay mail services if a full consolidation of mail services takes place, as it is feared that is the direction the Postal Service will eventually proceed with. Even more damaging is the impact the move could have on employees at the facility. It is suspected that temporary employees would lose their jobs if any employees were excessed from the facility.

The meeting will be held at the Decatur Utilities building at 7:00 pm, located at 1002 Central Parkway SW in Decatur. Please be there to show your support in preventing this move.
