Bryan to Maintain Mail Distribution Facility

By  | 

Through rain, sleet, snow or shine, local mail will continue to be processed in Bryan.

The US Postal Service had been considering eliminating the Bryan Post Office's Processing and Distribution facility and moving those operations to Houston, which would have meant slower mail delivery locally. Around 20 jobs were at stake as well.

But in the end, USPS decided not to make any significant changes.

Congressman Chet Edwards had been working with local leaders to prevent the move, and commended post office officials on their decision.

"I also want to commend the Bryan-College Station Chamber of Commerce and Tim Hurley, president of the local American Postal Workers Union, for going to bat for workers and businesses," Edwards said in a statement. "This is an example of what can be accomplished when business and workers come together for the good of the community."
