It appears that Omaha Postal operations won’t be reduced or consolidated. Omaha Postmaster Keith Reid stated that a recent study that looked at downsizing did not include the Omaha plant. Reed says part of the U-S Post Office’s consolidating and restructuring plan involves the Omaha facility handling cancellation duties of the Lincoln facility. He says Omaha will receive Lincoln’s mail in the afternoon, cancel it then immediately send it back and it will be ready for next day delivery.
Reid says streamlining changes to cut postal costs will mean more employees will be needed in Omaha but about two-dozen jobs at the Lincoln Post Office will be eliminated. He stated the U-S Postal service is looking at the entire infrastructure to see where they can fill processing sites to full capacity.
Reid says mail volume has dropped about 20-percent in the last 4 years.
