A public meeting is set as part of the U.S. Postal Service study of possible consolidation of its Madison and Milwaukee processing and distribution operations.
The Postal Service is down $16 billion this past year, and a study at the Madison Processing and Distribution Center will focus on the possible consolidation of some Madison operations to the Milwaukee Processing and Distribution Center.
Postal Service officials cite declining mail volumes and the large financial deficits the decline has created as the reason for the study.
The meeting is scheduled for May 29 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Alliant Energy Center inside Exhibition Hall B.
Through an Area Mail Processing study, the Postal Service said it's examining the Madison plant's efficiency in order to decide whether the center should consolidate.
