Meeting set regarding Wausau's postal review

Published: Saturday, July 5, 2014 at 12:26 PM.

WAUSAU- Wausau postal customers received a survey form from the U.S. Postal Service recently asking for their input into a process which is currently reviewing the Wausau post office.

Known as the POST Plan, the USPS states the process is designed to ensure America’s communities continue to have access to their products and services as the agency makes adjustments to reflect the nation’s current use of its services.

After receiving the results of the survey, the USPS will examine the responses and present a public meeting to answer questions at 3 p.m. Thursday, July 17, at Wausau Town Hall.

Unless the community has a strong preference - more than 60% - for conducting a discontinuance study for the Wausau post office and establishing an additional sources, such as finding a suitable alternative location operated by a contractor, the USPS says it intends to maintain the office with six hours of window service each weekday. Current Saturday window service hours and access to delivery receptacles will not change as a result of the POST Plan realignment of weekday window service hours.

Although survey results will be known and shared, the USPS will not make a final decision regarding the office until after the public meeting.
