COVID PROTOCOL APPROVED MEDIA POSTCARD
Sent in Lieu of Community Contact Meeting
The United States Postal Service is considering relocating the retail services previously provided at the above-referenced Post Office to a new location within the 53916, 53933 ZIP Code.
The Postal Service is considering relocation due to the potential installation of traffic barriers around our current location. The Postal Service is facing the most critical period in its history. Despite significant cost reductions, the Postal Service continues to experience a net loss as mail volume continues to decline because of increased electronic communication. As a self-supporting government establishment that receives no tax dollars for its operating expenses, the Postal Service must rely on the sale of postage, products and services to generate revenue. In the face of unsustainable deficits, the Postal Service must seek ways to cut costs, increase revenue and use its physical facilities as efficiently as possible.
The relocation project will consist of procuring a suitable substitute location, preparing the new location for use as a post office and then transitioning the retail services to the new location. The Postal Service will continue retail services at the existing location until the new post office is up and running. The Postal Service has identified the 53916, 53933 ZIP Code for the search area, but will like to be as close as possible to the previous location.
The Postal Service generally does not receive tax dollars for operating expenses; it relies entirely on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
