U.S. Postal Service officials say the agency could save an estimated $1.6 million annually by moving some mail processing operations from Lynchburg to Roanoke.
The News & Advance reports that Postal Service officials discussed the proposed consolidation Monday night during a public meeting in Lynchburg. They said the move wouldn't affect mail delivery.
Appalachian District Manager Robert Cavinder said the processing plants in Roanoke and Lynchburg are both operating below capacity.
Appalachian District senior plant manager John Prokity said other consolidations in Virginia and West Virginia have been successful.
