Public invited to sign mail service petition

Public invited to sign mail service petition
Newspapers in North Dakota are inviting users of the U.S. Postal Service to sign petitions asking the postal service and the state’s Congressional delegation to re-examine plans to diminish postal service in the state.
“Deliver the Mail! North Dakotans for Timely Mail Delivery” has been established to allow people to let postal officials and elected representatives know timely delivery of the mail is economically important.
Under plans recently delayed until May 2012, USPS had designated more than 75 North Dakota post offices for closure and the closing of mail processing centers in Devils Lake, Jamestown, Minot and Grand Forks. The postal service also wants to eliminate Saturday mail delivery.
