Concerns regarding impact on local mail deliveries


WILLMAR — Early Wednesday morning postmasters in large and small post offices across the country got an email with instructions to download a video from the U.S. Postal Service.

The video was a message informing workers that Saturday delivery of first-class mail would stop in August.

Under the plan, packages would still be delivered and mail sent to post office boxes would be delivered on Saturday, but otherwise regular delivery of mail to city and rural mailboxes would stop.
