Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad is continuing talks with officials from the United States Postal Service about the closure of the Pocatello Processing Center.
Monday Mayor Blad and Chubbuck Mayor Kevin England took part in a conference call with USPS officials based in Washington D.C.
“While we were in Washington officials promised to get back to us after looking into our concerns and true to their word they did,” said Mayor Blad. “It was a good conversation.”
The call comes close to two weeks after a delegation from East Idaho travelled to Washington D.C. and hand delivered stories from local residents to the Postal Service. All but two of the stories detailed the difficulties residents have experienced with mail since the processing center was shuttered.
“We plan to continue these talks in a spirit of cooperation to resolve this issue,” said Mayor Blad.
