Siskiyou Resident Warns Consolidation Will Delay Mail

Siskiyou Daily - A proposed consolidation by the United States Postal Service prompted one Siskiyou County resident to call on the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors last week to support a resistance effort…. “The Postal Service says eliminating excess capacity through consolidation is one of the few options it has to cut costs,” the blog reads. It also notes that at least one postal union has already “come out strongly” against the plan, alleging that the changes will degrade service and cause delays in the delivery of mail. Siskiyou County resident Jessica Hector shared similar concerns with the board of supervisors Oct. 7, stating that she believes the changes will result in delays of three to five days, potentially affecting the delivery of paychecks, medicines and other important items.
