USPS fiscal crisis: reductions in services to Alamo
Original post made by [removed], Alamo, on Jun 23, 2011
News services are reporting the fiscal crisis at the United States Postal Service and impacts on operations at our post offices. Alamo post office will consolidate routes from 15 to 10 in July and extend delivery times to late afternoon in many neighborhoods.
Additionally, mail received from sorting centers after 10AM will be delivered the next day. Also, package delivery on lanes that have their mail boxes at the entrance to the lane will be discontinued and packages will be delivered to mail boxes or a notice will be provided for pick up at the post office.
News services will be providing a list of post office closings in the coming weeks and initial information suggests that most counter service will be available only at major city post offices such as Walnut Creek, Lafayette and San Ramon.
