Sioux City residents have won a three-year battle to keep their mail distribution center form moving out of state. The U.S. Postal Service distribution service and local postmark will remain in Sioux City after looking like it could move to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Barb Sloniker of the local chamber of commerce said they heard today (Monday) that the postal distribution center would not move from a Postal Service district manager. The Postal Service ran into all kinds of opposition from local officials and Iowa’s two U.S. Senators over the proposed move. Sloniker says today’s announcement closes the issue for now.
Sloniker says if the Postal Service were ever to reconsider, it would have to go through the whole process once again that led to this conclusion. The Postal Service had said moving the Sioux City distribution center would provide better service with cost savings.
