Meeting set on moving Youngstown’s North Side post office


WFMJ: People using a post office on the North Side of Youngstown, Ohio, may have to go elsewhere if the United States Postal Service has its way.

Postal officials have notified the city that they want to relocate services offered at the current branch at 1716 Guadalupe Avenue.

A letter from U.S. Postal Service Real Estate Specialist David Wolff to Youngstown Mayor John McNally says the postal service is considering the relocation as a cost cutting measure.  The post office letter says that because people are utilizing electronic communication, fewer letters are being mailed.

An official from the post office will discuss what is being characterized as “tentative” plans for the move at a public hearing scheduled in Youngstown City Council Chambers, 26 S. Phelps Street, on March 27, 3 p.m.  Read more.
