A proposal to move pick up times for mail at several area post offices is being studied. According to the Topeka Capitol Journal Wednesday, the carrier which transports mail from Marysville and Seneca, among other stops indicated that the mail could go out an hour or two earlier for zip codes in the 664, 665, 666, and 668 boxes. Mail picked up by carriers after the cutoff time would go out the following day.
Officials emphasized that no decisions have been made. A notice will be posted on any affected collection box at least 30 days in advance to notify customers of the changes, so they can make any adjustments as needed. The proposal would not affect hours that service counters are open in post offices, although those are subject to review as the organization battles a drop off in business, and resulting revenue. Mail is currently processed in Kansas City following closure of several processing facilities in the state, including Topeka.
