GF, Devils Lake, Bemidji Postal Processing in Jeopardy

Grand Forks, Devils Lake and Bemdiji are on the list of more than 250 offices across the country that might get cut.

GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The Postal Service might close three local processing facilities.

Grand Forks, Devils Lake and Bemdiji are on the list of more than 250 offices across the country that might get cut.

The plan would slow mail delivery, cut as many as $35,000 jobs and save the agency as much as $3 billion each year.

Processing equipment would be cut by as much as 50 percent, dramatically decreasing the transportation network.

The postal service lost $8.5 billion last year and is facing an even larger deficit this year.
