Flint Leaders, Businesses Fighting For Downtown Post Office

The other day, The United States Post Office announced they were closing offices including 12 in Michigan and others were going to be reviewed for potential closures down the road. One being looked at is the downtown Flint location and many leaders and businesses are speaking out against it.

The Flint Journal reports that many downtown businesses and residents like the convenience of the downtown post office location and are hoping it won’t close in the future. Flint Mayor Dayne Walling says if the office closes, it hurts the progress they’ve made trying to rebuild the city:

‘”The residents and businesses need to have access to the Postal Service and there’s no reason to change what’s already working.’”

If an office does get selected to be reviewed, people served by that office have 60 days to file comments. Unfortunately the postal service has lost billions and they’re trying to figure out what to do. They’ve even talked about getting rid of Saturday delivery and some offices may have already seen that go into effect.

As they continue to review offices, hopefully the downtown Flint office will remain open. You can get more information on the United States Post Office site.
