"Our financial condition does not allow this kind of expenditure at this time."
The United States Postal Service issued a press release Thursday morning indicating that the brand new post office in the Rosa Parks Transportation Center downtown will not be shuttered after all. The facility had been slated for closure as the USPS undergoes a restructuring.
Post Office Operations Manager Jeff Camp cites logistical concerns for the USPS' decision to rescind the closure - a closure of the Rosa Parks office would "create congestion and hardships for employees and residents," the press release notes - although Camp does appear to leave open a window for closing the branch in the future: "We cannot move any letter carrier routes or post office boxes to nearby stations without significant structural changes to those postal facilities," says Camp. "Our financial condition does not allow this kind of expenditure at this time."
