The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced it will proceed with changes to outgoing mail at its Wenatchee Processing and Distribution Center.

In a Tuesday press release, spokesperson Kim Frum said the Postal Service would be moving some of the operations of its carrier annex on Ohme Road to Spokane at a projected savings of up to $360,000 annually.

Frum added the move would not result in any career employee layoffs.

The release also indicated the Wenatchee facility will receive $2 million in improvements to expand and modernize its ability to process and distribute parcels, including a new lighting system and upgraded workplace amenities like renovated and restrooms and break areas.

The USPS says the scheduled investments at its Wenatchee facilities are part of a ten-year plan to modernize and improve organizational and operational processes at all of its locations in the United States and U.S. Territories.

At a public meeting in Wenatchee last November, USPS representative Brian Gaines said the changes are expected to have a minimal impact on interlocal mail deliveries and would only affect four employees who could be transitioned into new positions outside of Wenatchee.
