Lufkin, TX — Facing ongoing debt and a financially unsustainable nationwide business model, the U.S. Postal Service in September proposed the consolidation, relocation or closure of more than half of its mail processing network, including changes to the Lufkin Customer Service Mail Processing Center which could mean the loss of 31 Lufkin jobs.
The Postal Service has scheduled a town hall meeting at 6 tonight in the council chambers at Lufkin City Hall, 300 E. Shepherd Ave., to discuss its proposal to move incoming mail processing operations from the Lufkin Customer Service Mail Processing Center to the Beaumont Processing and Distribution Center.
The meeting will be conducted by Postal Service managers, including Tim Vierling, acting district manager of the Dallas district, who give an overview of the reasons for the proposal and its possible outcomes and will listen to input and concerns.
