The U.S. Postal Service is shutting down nearly 40% of its processing centers around the country this year. A center in Rock Springs is scheduled to be closed, leaving just two of these facilities in Wyoming.

Post Service spokesman for Wyoming, David Rupert says the U.S.P.S. is ceasing overnight local letter delivery as well. But Rupert says most postal customers won’t notice these changes.

Governor Matt Mead is once again urging the U-S Postal Service of resist cutting some of Wyoming’s Post Offices.  Mead says rural Post Offices are an important source of commerce and communication for rural areas and he’s urging the Postal Service to find other ways to deal with its budget woes.
