Decisions about possible US Post Office closings will be delayed until May of 2012. The Postal Service made the announcement Dec 14, saying that Congress would get time to address to agency’s financial problems.
US Senator from Montana Jon Tester reacted favorably to the announcement, saying that Congress needs to adjust a 2006 law that puts a financial burden on the USPS operations.
In August, the Postal Service announced plans to close 85 Montana post offices, including the Sula Post Office (pictured). They also recommended closing the mail processing facilities in Missoula, Kalispell, Helena, Butte and Wolf Point.
Tester is on the Senate committee that oversees the USPS and continues his negotiations about the service’s future. The USPS is expected to lose a record $14 billion next year.
