Main Post Office on Interstate 30

Where are the elected officials? We need USPS or an elected official to call a community meeting to discuss what all of the losses for Dallas would be if the sorting of mail would be moved from the facility on Interstate 30. If the main functions are moved, do you believe that USPS would operate out of this facility? It would not be cost effective to do so.

It is my understanding that USPS is closing all of the Post Offices where they do not own the land and building. Will this be in your neighborhood?

I usually work late so I have to use the Main Post Office because the one in my neighborhood closes at 6:00 p.m. and you do not get a minute over that.

I understand effencies, but at what cost to large number of customers do you make such a move? I do not think that there are more customers in Coppell than in Dallas. I believe that the following aspects of our mail service will be affected;

a. Home and Business mail delivery in Dallas will be affected if this takes place.

b. There will be job loss of tenured employees that primarily live in Dallas.

c. Dallas will loose the postmark (8th largest city with no postmark). Coppell will be the postmark.

d. Dallas residents will loose the convenience of using a Post Office in the evenings for stamps, money orders, shipping boxes and mailing letters.

Help me ask for a community meeting so that USPS can explain this move to Coppell to the Dallas residents and elected officials. Call your Dallas City Councilperson, State Senator, State Representative, US Representative and US Senator.
