U.S. Postal Service to Close West Lewis Street location in Pasco

Budget cuts at the U.S. Postal Service will eventually force the downtown Pasco location on West Lewis Street to close.

Although no definite time-line has been given, a spokesman says one full-time and one part-time employee will be transferred to Pasco's Court Street location.

This is not the first time the Postal Service has attempted to close the West Lewis Street Post Office.

The move comes after the Postal Service transferred operations of its mail handling center at the Court Street location in Pasco to Spokane.

About 15 employees are affected by that move.
