Youngstown post office consolidation would result in lost jobs, tax revenue



Published: Tue, July 19, 2011 @ 11:40 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Nearly 500 local jobs and $500,000 in city income taxes could be at risk if the U.S. Postal Service decides to consolidate Youngstown’s processing and distribution facilities.

The postal service plans to conduct an Area Mail Processing study to decide if the Youngstown workload can be shouldered by postal facilities in Akron or Cleveland.

The postal service says the study is needed because of the current economic downturn and continued Internet diversion that has led to a drastic 20-percent decline in mail volume since 2007.
