(WASHINGTON)—US Postal Service officials are moving ahead with plans to close dozens of mail processing centers including the facility at Quincy. 140 centers will be consolidated this year including 48 in August.  Another 89 closings are planned in 2014.

The original plan announced earlier this year called for Quincy's operations to be folded into a larger facility in Columbia Missouri. Employees at Quincy would be allowed to apply for positions at different facilities.
