The Postal Service wants to make it easier to close post offices


The Postal Service has filed formal notice through the Federal Register of a proposed change to the Discontinuance (closing) process for Post Offices (39 Code of Federal Regulations).  If approved, this change would allow the Postal Service to make the Rhinecliff Post Office a "retail branch" of the Rhinebeck Post Office, which would make it much easier to close the Rhinecliff P.O.  

The proposal is open to public comment for the next two months.  You can read more about that in the Talking Points provided by the National League of Postmasters, and also see the Action Alert.
