Md. mail distribution center closure proposed

FREDERICK — The U.S. Postal Service says an internal study supports closing a mail processing and distribution center in Frederick that employs about 160 people.

Plant manager Bruce Wall told The Frederick News-Post on Monday that about 85 of the workers could apply for jobs in Baltimore and the rest would be reassigned to other jobs.

The study says the consolidation would save the Postal Service $4.2 million.

A Town Hall meeting to discuss the proposal is scheduled for the evening of May 10 at Frederick High School.
