Rural Mail May Not Be Going Postal

Jul 26, 2011

 

Boise ID – The US Postal Service announced this week that it’s considering the closure of nearly 3,700 offices as a way to save money.  Twenty-three of those offices are in some of Idaho’s more rural communities.  Boise State Public Radio’s Emily Schwing reports.

The first handful of closures could take place this fall.  The USPS is also considering an end to Saturday delivery service.  Over 80 post offices in Oregon and Washington may also face closures.  Adam Cotterell contributed to this report.
